Byrne Cuts the Deal, Gets the C Line

      The New York State Conservative Party has given the out of party authorization to 2014 AD 116 Assembly candidate John Byrne, leaving Mr. Byrne with the Indy, Conservative and Reform lines as he wages a three way GOP primary against Bill Sheridan and bobsledder Russ Finley.
      Insiders say SLC Conservative Czar Hank Ford had a plethora of proxies lined up at the State Committee level for Mr. Byrne.

Good. Finley needs to Endorse Byrne now and stop his laughable 'campaign'. If not he'll always be known as a loser and spoiler...

That's pretty disgusting. I could see them doing that if Byrne actually had a shot at winning..but he doesn't, so as it will turn out, they embarrassed their party for nothing.

No surprise that Hank Ford would do an end-run on the only lifelong Republican who hails from St. Lawrence County in order to throw support behind last election's loser solely to spite Sheridan for things that happened many years ago. Hank Ford was actually a Republican who fell out of favor with the local GOP organization and was passed over for chairmanship. Memories and grudges run long and deep in local politics. Great job Hank, throw your support behind the guy who couldn't beat Addie when she was down and should have been out. Might as well have given the Conservative nod to her - same result as supporting Byrne.

Addie shouldnt have any real problem this year with Sheridan.
But as all good GOP its up to Byrnes and Sheridan to endorse Trump.. Ritchie and Blankenbush are yet to step up so obviously they are for Clinton..
Dont think much of Finley but at least he is his own man and endorsed Trump months ago along with Doheny and others.

Mc,Mike, John Byrne is not the best answer to turn around anything. He is a campaign politician, not a legislating leader. His energy is in getting elected to some office, if he gets there, someone has to tell him what to do.

MCM, you must be kidding. Byrne sat on the Cape Vincent town board for two terms and could not(would Not) address the simple corruption of an illegal water district in the town. You expect him to turn around corruption at the State level??? gimmee a break! He might be a good guy, but don't try to sell him as something he's not.
