Republicans are not worried over an Oneida County woman said to be contesting the new Assembly seat held by Ken Blankenbush. Maria Pavelock will be the likely Democratic nominee and the party will let her make the run as she has the personal fortune to make a long shot bid.
As for the GOP, they see the district as almost bullet proof even though it now includes parts of Oneida County not previously represented by Mr. B.
In the other local Assembly seat, Democrat Addie Russell seems unopposed, and the Republcian High Command admits they have no viable challenger.
