Stefanik: No Debate on Arcade Street

     Channel 7 in Watertown was rebuffed in a bid to host a debate in the NY21 contest between Rep. Elise Stefanik, Democrat Mike Derrick and Green Matt Funiciello.
     Rep. Stefanik announced she will participate in three forums, two on television (one on Time Warner and one on PBS).
      The plan denies Mr. Derrick a possible higher rated forum on WWNY, where he surely would want to make his case to the western end of the district.  120 is grumbling over the slight.
        On the other hand Time Warner is used to hosting such forums as is the PBS station out east.
         Democrats privately say they think their candidate will do better than expected, but also concede Donald Trump will carry NNY, thus sort of conceding the race.
         Meanwhile the North Country's Finest isn't pleased over the lack of acknowledgment.

Derrick could only "potentially" benefit from a 1 on 1 debate. With Mr. Fun there, he'll be forced to the left and be mostly trying to hold his base. Of course, hardly anyone will actually see these so only the secondary news reports will be seen and they'll only get attention if someone really messes up.

That's our Elise. A real bulldog, that one! Let's hope she doesn't walk off the stage if asked a tough question...

Who wants to hear Scottykos grill the Harvard Gal about Trump for an hour straight while ignoring her opponents support of Clinton. Besides, she will have a tough enough time with the Time Warner Cuomo Channel outlet and the woodchucks do get cable.

Scotty, Ahhhh cry us a river. Maybe if you had been a tad neutral in your coverage of her than maybe should would throw you a crumb.

Good for Stefanik.

Maybe it's because Scott does not want to give Mike Derrick name with a face recognition that might harm Elyse. There are things that Elyse can be criticized for. Scott knows this and wants to keep her foibles as quiet as possible. Od course this is not fair, but then again, WWNY is for the Republicans and not the impartial Press it wants us to think it is.

Turn your nose up at em Stefanic. Nothing but liberal left lean white males in their 55-60ish group that have deep rooted issues with females. Most likely they get smacked around verbally in their own homestead and cower to their dominant partner.

Sissy Men , their repressive urges are played out in various ways aka Barnyard Billyboy Clinton. How many women did he rough up, biting them and the damn Arkansas State police/detail did nothing.

Now they call themselves feminists, aka Barrack Hussin Obama. I might be mistaken maybe he feels using another one of his identities
as Barry Soroto.

Laughable, all of them.

So true, turned up her nose and only using NY 21 as a stepping stone for her political carrier. She is a good self promoter but that's all.

You don't dongs never talked with her if you think she is turning up her nose. She is busy doing the job we hired her, and pay her to do!

I recently sent two emails to Ms. Stefanik, 249. All I received for a response was a flyer and a donation request!
