John Byrne Campaigns in Ogdensburg in 2014
Republicans dismiss Mr. Finley as a party changing interloper who spoiled their prospects two years ago and threatens to do the same this year.
I think Mr. Sheridan thought he was going to be the establishment choice, but a check of the petition witness statements likely would say otherwise. His effort so far has shown no media savvy as he ticked off the WDT and NJ by feeding his announcement to Jeff Cole on WWNY.
Since this is the only race of interest locally, this drama will provide a sidebar of entertainment, but with no advertising budgets, the really juicy accusations and acrimony won't make it through the generally pro-Byrne media filter.
One thing for sure is the Dems won't sit on their hands this time and the whole SAFE Act, common core mantra has faded.
