I see my old friend June O'Neill has chimed in on the NY 21 races in which her hand picked candidate from 2009 has once again defended his seat against a tough challenge.
June says the win shows the North Country cannot be bought by "anonymous donors and super PACS."
Oh, June, you are so on-point.
Yes the Doheny campaign was well funded, self funded, and super PAC funded....But let's not make it sound that North Country Democrats are the 'little engine that could.'
Fact is everybody is into big money from sources voters don't know anything about.
When the Siena poll showed the race close, Dems opened a checkbook and bought hundreds of thousands of dollars in late advertising.
I don't think June wants to tell us where all that money came from....
Funding campaigns has come a long way June from when I struggled to give you a hundred bucks for your Assembly bid a couple of decades ago.
