Jefferson County voters are proving they are no longer as Republican as it would seem when you look at local offices.
While 13 of 15 county legislators call themselves GOP, the major office candidates barely won the county. Mitt Romney and Matt Doheny are looking at about a thousand vote win, and that's a far cry from the gold old days of the NNY GOP Team.
Both Mr. Romney and Mr. Doheny likely salvaged the win in the county in recent weeks but local GOP poobahs have to be wondering how competitive they are, especially if they didn't have an ambitious and self funded candidate like Mr. Doheny.
