A GOP prison closing plan ? Are there enough Upstate prisons in Democratic held Senate districts or will select GOP Senators be asked to fall on their sword back home....Time will tell...
Also, will any plans to close facilities in NYC pass muster ?
There is still a good chance actual closings will not be known until after a budget is approved...That's likely what the Governor wants. Keep em guessing till its too late.
If one were purely political, one would choose prisons in a district unlikely to flip under any circumstances...I am not sure Senator Ritchie is that safe a seat yet.
