I just muse based on what I hear, but tonight I had the pleasure of hearing from Republican Bill Sheridan who is running for Assembly and by coincidence had dinner tonight at Pete's with his absolutely charming bride Amanda.
I got there late as I was at the gym making up for a life of sloth, but we had a nice chat.
Mr. Sheridan is one of three people seeking the GOP line in AD 116, the so called River District held now by Assemblywoman Addie Russell.
So far, the racket has favored 2014 candidate John Byrne who has locked up the three GOP me-too parties and seems to be the favorite of the Republican chairs and sitting pols.
Mr Sheridan clearly knows politics and plans to press on. However, if he wins the B line without the me-too parties it would be hard to beat Ms. Russell.
There will be little or no news coverage of this race, so you will have to work to find out what's going on. Mr. Sheridan did mention he supports Donald Trump. So far only Russ Finley has said so while John Byrne was backing Governor John Kasich and stood with the local political and media establishment at the Kasich rally in April.
Two years ago, I think the MSM had lined up behind Mr Byrne, but I am not so sure this time. We will see, and its clear Mr Sheridan and bobsledder Russ Finley have no intention of folding their cards.
