Dems Response to Salty Water Likely Helps Incumbent

   Salty groundwater was supposed to be a good election year issue to use against the incumbent, but millions from Albany and kind words from the locals make it that much tougher for Republicans to oust Assemblywoman Addie Russell.

Sorry, Jeff. It's too late for Albany Addie. And your read on the local response to the project is off. Locals know Addie didn't have the juice to pull this off. The deal was done by Ritchie. (BTW, you also missed the bit in the Post Standard about the role Ritchie played in saving the Oswego nuke. Remember the eminent domain threat came in her bill and the Senate's budget--not from the Governor.) And how weird is it to include a quote in your own press release (Addie's) from the Supervisor that suggests that the two don't even get along?

Talk to the locals, including the wine guy. They know Addie didn't get this done, but that won't stop her from trying to TAKE (not GET) credit.

7:42 is correct. This 11th hour "grant", in lieu of taking responsibility for contaminating wells, is not going to gain Addie any new voters. The only reason Addie will win is because Byrne is the new Doheny. When you get your ass handed to you on a platter, in spite of all the stars lining up against your opponent, it makes sense NOT TO RUN AGAIN. It makes sense for local GOP leaders to back a new horse. Instead the doubled down on the loser. A loser who incidentally gains nothing for the GOP, because he sides with the democrats on every issue but the abortion up until birth. I challenge you to name one other issue that Addie and Byrne differ on. There are none.

$13,000,000.00 for 50 contaminated wells???

Word has it that grant was simply tip money from Adelaides maid duties in the City. Business is brisk.

Yes Byrne got his ass handed to him. He not only got beat up by a girl, he got beat by a girl who stood by Silver's side. He got beat when everything lined up to give any legitimate Republican candidate a clear victory.
