Eclectic ? Yes, a bit...but Zephyr Teachout has anti corruption chops in a year when that's big. She is hated by the Governor even though she's a Democrat and she has enthusiasm and effervescence against a GOP rival known for being strident and didactic. John Faso, who lost to Eliot Spitzer in 2006 is thought to have his hands full in the 19th District stretching down the Hudson Valley.
Faso is also yesterday's news.
A long time GOP hack tells me Ms. Teachout may have an edge, although variables like Presidential turnout come into play.
Ms. Teachout also can raise money although Mr. Faso is well lubricated financially.
Should be an interesting race.
