There is the usual back and forth over Rep. Bill Owens trip to Taiwan over the Christmas holidays. My question is how did our Member of Congress slip off to Taiwan with no one noticing ? It's almost five months later.
The Matt Doheny campaign criticised the trip, saying the district could do better.
The Owens loyalists (or Doheny haters, I don't know which) are busy with their 'our guy was kissing up to lobbyists but Doheny was kissing an operative' rationale.
This is an opening for Mr. Doheny to take the shine off Mr. Owens who so far has avoided personal controversy in seeking a third term representing NNY.
Its going to be a spirited campaign with the rival press flacks cranking out daily jabs at their foes.
