Voting has yet to happen this year and the political class is looking ahead to next year with the GOP trying to find someone to run against Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, who last year won the right to fill out the final two years of Hillary Clinton's term.
2010 comptroller candidate Harry Wilson is being mentioned. He almost won a statewide race against Tom DiNapoli.
Senator Gillibrand is the former Albany area Member of Congress picked from relative obscurity to fill the vacant seat.
Since then she has become a formidable political force and GOP prospects for beating her are long, but not competing seriously for the seat could affect other Republican candidates down ballot.
Its tough to find someone credible to stand in front of the train for love of party.
