Assemblywoman Jane Corwin looks like the likely successor for former Rep. Chris Lee who resigned recently after a shirtless photo of him appeared on Facebook.
Ms. Corwin joked that if elected she will not appear on Facebook and seems an upstanding credible choice for the GOP. Governor Cuomo controls the timing of the special election, so he will delay it until a viable Dem surfaces.
Assemblywoman Corwin is heir to the talking phonebook fortune, which her family developed and later sold. She says she spent 36 years in the private sector before getting into the Assembly a couple years ago.
