WDT:Absentee Outreach Likely to Decide GOP Assembly Race.

    The roughly four hundred absentees in this week's Republican  Assembly primary will determine the winner. William Sheridan led John Byrne by seven votes on Tuesday night.
     The absentees voted over the weeks before the primary and may not follow the pattern from Tuesday. Two years ago general election night numbers were percentage wise disfferent from the makeup of the absentees that carried Addie Russell to reelection.
     Also, it may depend on which candidate had a plan to cultivate absentees, including outreach and efforts to get friends to lock in a vote if you suspect they won't make it out on primary day.
     It's clear few were aware of or interested in this race. Turnout barely topped one in ten Republicans.

You seem to be interested. Too bad you don't register wit the party of know, then you could have a vote. these primaries are EXACTLY why I registered as a Republican. If democrats today were still like the older generation democrats...you know...your pAddie Ritchie type democrat, I would still vote for them most of the time. But right now, the way to make your vote actually count, is to be registered as a republican and vote in the primaries.

Well, well. Finley signs are still up all over the Big County. Must be he is going to run a Write in campaign and help Addie keep her seat. You would think he would be running around with his head down picking the signs up, or even at dark when nobody can see him. Whats the deal Russ?

8:01, pull your head out of that dark place you think with. Your ilk has gotten pretty much everything you wanted. ObambaCare is a disaster. Open borders have continued. Your Arab Spring has destroyed any balance in that part of the world and the resulting refugee problem is just beginning. Taxes are higher than ever. We now have really neat programs like sex change operations for soldiers and the ability to piss anywhere we so desire. We hate our police, squat when the national anthem is played, and screw our vets at every opportunity, all while saving money to finance muzzlims who hate us but want to live here anyway. The Supreme Court is now made up of softball players. And the Russians feel safe, all while our little victim college students feel so afraid. I would have thought you would feel proud of your accomplishments. Silly me. We now live in DannieWorld. America is no more.

Whats going to happen is Russ is out and the signs will remain until someone else takes them down. Byrne will run as a Conservative against Addie and Sheridan and Addie either way will return to Albany.
Byrnes is too stupid to have worked the proper people in the absentees.
Over in SLC I think V anhouse was worked into the election by his boss Hooper who is a legislator. The party worked hard to get him elected and we all know he will bow to the legislators..
Santamore may hang on and run on the Independant line but I think Cole wins because of her overall experience with the job.. Her downfall is politics being played in favor of VanHouse so we will watch and see if some complaints start coming in about Cole by The Republican run legislature.
