Funiciello Candid With Media About This Year's NY21 Race

      Very seldom does a candidate walk into an E Board meeting and concede defeat five weeks before the election, but that's the interesting strategy of Matt Funiciello who tells the Times and others Rep. Elise Stefanik will win but his goal is to finish second ahead of Democrat Mike Derrick and in the process discourage a Dem candidacy in 2018, giving Funiciello a clear one on one with the incumbent.
      It's hard to finish second, despite Mr. Funiciello's name recognition and the appeal of his outsider message in a year featuring Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump.
      The reason is what I call the 'turnip vote.'   A certain percentage of the electorate would vote for a turnip if it was listed on a major party line.
        My prediction is 55-30-15. Jot it down and let me know if I'm right.

Funiciello is the only interesting candidate in the NY21 race. He has intelligence, conviction, and can hold a conversation that doesnt sound like a robot.

Better a turnip than trump.

That said, the poppyseed boy is a joke. He needs to drop out. Better to let the adults from real parties duke it out for the congressional seat!

7:12 got it right. Derrick and Stefanik are both sub par intellects.

7:48, like every dannietype, you seem to panic when people have choices.

There are no true choices Skankboy. Both major candidates are interlopers and the greenguy is a fruit loop.

Move along. Nothing new to see here this cycle...

Dannie/10:19, I have no idea why a choice scares you so much. You do have the same panic attack when news outlets are discussed. And be assured, when it comes to you, I will never move along. I'm stuck.
