Signed my first petition of the political season today. It was a Conservative one for Rep. Elise Stefanik. Glad to help out. Councilman Mark Walczyk stopped by. I took a blank so I can get my Conservative tenant.
For all the thousands of names I have gotten over the years, I have lost my appetite for the process, unless someone is standing right in front of me.
Turns out the WWNY revelation on a prominent Republican endorsing Trump was indeed Matt Doheny. It was not really breaking news as he had written a LTE to the WDT days ago.
But it was a chance for the former candidate to resurface, sparking the inevitable speculation about future races, perhaps that Assembly race the GOP is finding it hard to find a consensus candidate the establishment will accept.
Mr. Doheny's Trump endorsement is interesting and may indicate a bit of the Paladino spirit among Watertown's political elites. Be interesting to see if 260 follows suit.
Watching early returns. Trump and Clinton doing as expected in Florida.
