Democrat Mike Derrick has a hard hitting commercial up now ripping Rep. Elise Stefanik on alleged Wall Street ties and claiming he will fight trade deals that threaten NNY jobs.
The spot is fine but insiders say he is up on air now in an effort to boost his polling so he can make a case to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee for dollars. The national parties often triage local races and ditch lost causes.
Last week we noted two Derrick mailers that showed up at select households.
While the Colonel has had come success in fund raising he would need national help for the kind of effort needed to upset the first term incumbent.
Meanwhile Rep. Stefanik has spots up to keep that from happening.
With little media coverage of politics, we voters won't know how the race is going, but the insiders will know by month's end if NY21 is a contest or not...
My guess is the big boys pass on this race, but we'll know soon if the cavalry comes to the Colonel's rescue at this Little Bighorn.
