GOP Pres. Candidates May Appear in WNY | WGRZ.com

     Western NY media is already looking at the upcoming Presidential primary on April 19. Buffalo may see  all the candidates, particularly Donald Trump who is a favorite of the Erie County GOP and their mentor, Carl Paladino.
       Western NY could well be Trump Country.  In 1992, Ross Perot ran well there and I 2010 Mr. Paladino carried several counties there while being swamped in the rest of the state by Andrew Cuomo.
        Syracuse may be another upstate venue for those seeking the state's 95 delegates which will be apportioned by CD. Long Island is another site.
        New York has not been important in recent Presidential races due to the stampede to decide by South Carolina. The unique aspects to this year's race will create competition right through California in early June.
        Other Northeast states like NJ and PA will also be important this year. Governor John Kasich is counting on the NE to garner enough delegates to give him leverage at a contested convention. Senator Ted Cruz may find things a little tougher in the region ,but in still in the hunt for delegates.

Kasich's call for citizenship for illegals won't get him much support upstate.

It came down to the truth today.. The Republican National committee stated point blank that they pick the canidate not the people... Time to start voting straight Democrat until things change and the peoples wishes are forfilled.

So why have primaries if what is selected remains only in the hands of the few. Democracy? Democracy?......WHAT Democracy?

Voter boycott if will of people is ignored. Democrats take both houses. Three parties in two years, GOP extinct in four.

I hope our MOC knows Cruz and gets him here.

What shouldn't Palladino not like about him, he is anti establishment, a true conservative and he is what America needs right now.

'Women need to be treated like sh##, and they need to be on their knees'


Best one yet according to the Father of the Year Trump, 'if she weren't my daughter, I would date her' also known as I would do her.

What an absolute pig of a man.

I'm sorry I may be old fashion but never have I heard any of my male woodchuck buddies say they would 'do their own daughter' not even in a jocular locker room macho off the cuff moment.
