Kolb: Progress, Not Change In Silver-to-Heastie Switch

    No surprise here....the GOP Minority Leader in the Assembly says little has changed since Carl Heastie took over for Sheldon Silver as Speaker.
      What change were we expecting?   Leader Brian Kolb's flock is less than one-third of the body.
       That said, I am following with interest our local race to see who the GOP tries to put up against Assemblywoman Russell, who after a close call last time is considered in play with the right opponent.

You keep saying that foolish thing. She has ALWAYS been in play. Just waiting for an Opponent who doesn't suck.So far that has not happened.

A much different situation from our MOC and Patty, who are essentially bullet proof.

Or maybe one opponent at a time, 10:07. Addie being "in play" has been the problem since her beginning. She plays with the NYC thugs at every turn while forgetting who she really represents. What is needed is a person who can think on her own. We don't need to send another maid to Albany who playcates with all that is downstate Democrat. I have seen a bump up in Addie's pandering to her base, the education lobby. That could save her yet again. She continually gushes at schools, never out with the people who pay the taxes.

With the Prez. up this cycle it will be a benefit to Addie. To beat the incumbent you need to have both the Rep. line and the conservative line. Not sure Byrne can garner both and Finley, who is almost guaranteed the Conservative line is not likely to stand up to the battle in the Republican field.

Finley is a registered Republican now, as he likely plans to compete in that primary. To compete in a Conservative primary, he needs a Wilson-Pakula. I don't know if Long gives it up, but if he does, yes Finley has leverage. And he knows Monica Crowley.
