NYS Republican Chair Ed Cox summarized upstate voters as "apple knockers" today in a cable TV interview.
That's a derogatory term meaning ignorant or unsophisticated people. Chairman Cox was discussing the different regional factions in the NY GOP.
Chairman Cox is a Manhattan snob and a failed chairman. He married one of Tricky Dick's daughters (Tricia), and that's his claim to fame.
It was clear from the interview where he stands and it's not with Donald Trump.
