Source: Byrne to Challenge Russell Again

     The so far moribund race for Assembly in the 116th may heat up. I was told today Republican John Byrne will be announcing soon and as part of that he will announce he has the Conservative nomination.  That is likely to be based on Conservative Regional Vice Chair Hank Ford's recommendation Byrne get the W/P.  A primary for the C line could still be waged either by an OTB or an in party member
    Mr Byrne ran two years ago and lost to incumbent Addie Russell by 92 votes.
     This year, former international bobsledder Russ Finley is also running for the GOP nod, but is not popular among party leaders.

Byrne had his chance and he failed like the big fat rino loser he is. The GOP leaders better get on board the Russ railraod or they are in for a spanking from both sides that will make Woolfie's defeat look like a close race.

I don't see Sheldon's maid losing on this one. Most have forgotten her obedience to the city thugs. And give the lady credit. She has pandered very effectively these past couple years. And after all, she has already established a new NYC clientele.

Watching Saving Private Ryan tonight. How could so many have paid such a price only to see their country destroyed from within? At least most of them didn't live long enough to see it. Individual rights and freedom is what they were fighting for. Now, it's mostly FreeStuff and professional victimhood.

Boy, what a year to run as a Rupublican. Just run as a Trump Republican and you should be a shoe in up here!

Travis Damm of Gouverneur will be leading Addies re-election effort this year. Damm the outspoken critic of Russell has apologized to russell for comments he made a couple of years ago and has had a complete change of heart.
He spearheaded a behind the back coup this year in ousting Joe Lightfoot from the chairmanship of the SLC legislature and really has become quite a critic of the poor.

9:58, "big fat rino loser?" That's a bit weird, don't you think? You must really care. And you sure do base your opinion on facts.

Good God, Don Coon WTF don't you get? sure John is a nice guy he is just not electable have you not been paying attention to who Russ Finley has in his corner. He has a better shot this year. He is the Trump candidate, that we need to run against Addie Russell he will beat her by plenty of Votes. Please listen to your base that has been right numerous times run Russ he wins you run John she crushes him and sails to victory...
