North Country GOP Chairs Pass on Trump Endorsement | WWNY

    A follow up local angle story on the Times Union story about the heavy pressure from Carl Paladino and others to get GOP leaders to endorse Donald Trump before the April 19 primary.
    NNY chairs didn't bite and after Crazy Carl's over the top thrashing of our MOC, that was the right move.  
     Ironically, in this year where the establishment is dirt, no one cares about party poobahs or their endorsements.

Those of us that back Trump really feel that the lack of a spine and a independant choice goes with the establishment party politics of NNY as well as in Washington.
Trump will win the nomination or if its taken away from him by the chosen few the party will split and disappear forever. There will be riots all over the cities and one thing that can be sure of is that Hillary Clinton will be the first woman president and the democrats back in control of the Senate this year and in Congress within two.

I heard Juston call in today and give you his daily ration of disrespect. I tell you what...you have more patience than I do. I would only let him use that TBI as an excuse for his rude aggressive demeanor, for so many years, before I would have my fill of it and knock him on his ass.

Endorsements are increasingly irrelevant in the internet age as people have more access to candidates and their platforms. In the stone age when print news ruled an endorsement was valuable because of the lack of information to voters. Voters has no choice or ability to get close to a candidate. So an endorsement from somebody who could was as good as gold.

9:49 - I agree completely. Now it seems the only people who come out with endorsements are has-beens, irrelevant politicians with zero impact or Hollywood stars with inflated opinions of their own roles in society.

So the only "politician" who hopped on Paladino's crazy train was Doheny. Interesting. I still don't understand why that endorsement was even covered by the news. Why does anyone care about a guy who ran for the same office 4 times in a row and never won?? He's never been elected to anything and the only local position he's ever had was when he was appointed to the library board and he totally blew that by never ever ever showing up and was ultimately asked to step down. The guy has to do something, anything, if he wants to be relevant. He's done nothing.
