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).
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.
