There's not a dime's worth of difference between North Country Congressional candidates on the issue of minimum wage hikes....Both Matt Doheny and Rep. Bill Owens say they oppose it.
I suspect Mr Doheny's opposition is more steadfast, but they both say they oppose it nonetheless.
Mr. Owens likely feels he can't be seen as too much of a progressive in NNY where love of Democrats is still a newfound emotion.
For Mr. Owens the strategy is not to roil the waters by drawing distinctions on controversial issues like minimum wage or Obamacare.
He wants the race to be on image. Doheny wants it to be on ideology.....
