For Representative Elise Stefanik, the path to the GOP nomination this year is much easier than two years ago. The 12 county committees all back her this time. Last time eleven did, but the one that didn't was home to the bitter primary challenge by Matt Doheny.
On this date two years ago, what is apparent now was clouded by myopic and parochial news coverage. It was also hand to hand combat pitting a well established two time candidate against a young tyro unknown to most.
Tempers ran high, as the primary resolved the matter and Stefanik went on to win in November.
All ancient history now.
