Schumer Gets an Opponent
The GOP sacrificial lamb to run against Senator Chuck Schumer may be the same lamb who ran against Senator Kirsten Gillibrand a few years back.
NYC attorney Wendy Long is expected to seek the GOP and Conservative Party nominations.
Senator Schumer is a proven vote getter, even upstate and is sitting on a huge war chest.
Senator Schumer will be seeking his fourth term and is thought to be in line for the leader role as Senator Harry Reid of Nevada is retiring.
Ms Long visited the HOTLINE during her last run and was well spoken and congenial, but it's hard to see a path to victory this year.
