On the day Speaker Paul Ryan endorsed Donald Trump, the Democratic candidate for NY 21 is still refusing to say who he voted for in the NY primary two months ago.
Michael Derrick was the guest on the HOTLINE today where the retired Army colonel outlined his views and his attack to come on Rep. Elise Stefanik.
Mr. Derrick says he is open to using Donald Trump as an attack line and will adopt a Doheny-esque approach by attempting to make an issue of residency, her future ambitions and her donor base in 2014.
He even extended a hand to Doheny loyalists by saying how surprised they were by her outside support. I kinda think that ship has sailed, but the subject came up when I asked if there was a compelling reason to oust Rep. Stefanik after just one term.
Mr. Derrick was well versed in geo politics and foreign affairs and believes this CD is one of eight in the country that's truly a swing district.
President Obama did win here in 2012 over Mitt Romney.
Mr. Derrick was the second candidate to visit America's Favorite Noontime Talk Show. Green Party candidate Matt Funiciello visited recently while the incumbent has yet to stop by.
