B yrne-Russell Slugfest the Main Card in Local Elections

   The upcoming Russell-Byrne race will be a clean two way battle. No stranded or non viable candidates.
    It will be interesting to see how it plays out. The best shot at Ms. Russell was two years ago, but the right campaign can defeat her....It really comes down to what she does...
     There will be private polls and that will drive strategy. Whether to play safe or go nuclear.
      The district is going Trump and that helps John Byrne. But the Russell campaign is locked and loaded (they might not like the analogy) with opposition research.
      I think its more a question of whether Republicans want the seat enough to support their candidate with money and organization.
       And I think the incumbent might want to have a good answer for the NYC allegiance issue that candidate Sheridan raised, as that will be the central attack against her. It's also the issue that will drive voters, more than attacking the foibles of one candidate.
        It's the only real race locally, so let's enjoy the battle.

Is that a photo of Addie? I didn't recognize here without her apron. I can see why Shelly and the boyz had a special relationship with our rep. She's no Gilliabrandt, but she's a good one.

Never heard of Tim White until politicos brought up his name right here, Jeff. Made a couple of calls to some of the other local politicos in the NC. And from both parties. I now understand the deep concern for our local donkeys. This man and his Cape co-chair (his wife) are not the direction Addie should take. What Tim White did in Cape Vincent along with the Aubertine ilk and ignorance is likely the reason John Byrne came so close last time. Cape Vincent style of donkey politics is CORRUPT, prejudiced and far right of Atila the Hun. And yes, I confirmed what another said about their disgusting court action they took against Jefferson County voters and the honorable election commissioners.

Not a smart choice by Addie to get involved with political thugs.
