WDT: Doing the Photo Ops and Getting the Photo

     This is the difference in Addie Russell's 2016 campaign versus her close call win in 2014.....Two years ago she wouldn't be visiting the Oxbow FD to see how a member item was spent, and there certainly wouldn't have been this kind of press.....
     In fact the paper didn't really care for her last time, to the point of endorsing a thoroughly unvetted candidate.
      The race will likely be a redux of 2014, but beating the incumbent won't be that easy in a Presidential year in which Ms. Russell is taking the campaign seriously.

She still longs for her days with Shelly Silver. Once you sell out your own people, you don't just become human again by attending some FD soiree.

Voters don't pay attention to the WDT's. Ask Fratty Matty.

She will have a tough time again but if Byrne wins the primary she will win the general by Owens margins again.

Byrne has it this time once the spoilers get out of the way.

Finley is the best person for the job.

She survives. But the Dems take the neighboring Janet Duprey seat, with Billy Jones overshadowing her as the favored one in the North Country for both the Governor and Assembly leadership.

Addis wins easily. The only real Republican doesn't stand a chance. Both Byrne and Finley are jokes behind local GOP doors...

4:45, you may be right. But Finley is no joke. He's an honest, straightforward individual. With so many folks like you around, he probably doesn't win. But that's what makes NY a political and economic anus, deep thinkers like yourself.
