WDT: Byrne Wins GOP Primary

    Strong absentee numbers in his home county propelled John Byrne to the GOP nomination in AD 116 and the rematch against Assemblywoman Addie Russell. This time Mr. Byrne will have the Indy, Conservative and Reform lines.
     Rival Bill Sheridan was ahead on primary night and gained 13 votes in SLC but got swamped down here.
      Democrats has rooted for Sheridan to create a split line race, but the candidacy of Mr. Byrne creates a grudge match after his narrow loss in 2014.

I'm voting for Addie the maid. I don't want Byrne the RINO in there voting the same way she would but not getting us any of the freestuff for doing so.

A grudge match in your mind because you carried the grudge. Byrne is from the good in Cape Vincent and not the slime that brought out the very worst of MY Democratic party. I will now take another look at Mr. Bryne after Tim White became the County Chair. I did vote for Addie last time because I was not aware of what went down in Cape Vincent and how she jumped aboard on their putrid approach to democracy.

Just google up Addie J. Russell's support of Speaker Sheldon Silver, who's staying out of jail wihile his appeal runs its putrid course, and then go vote for John Byrne! Mike Flynn 'Middle Class Mike'

Graham called this one. He said Byrne had the better organization and would have likely done better at recruiting absentee votes. He was right.

Any chance they will contest this? Those windmill haters are known for living in Canada and voting here anyway.

Jeff your comment above was just another insult and ignorance of the process. The absentee ballet is an insurance in case of not being at the polls on election day. Last Friday we were called out of town for a family emergency. Thanks to our good folks Babette and Jude and their staff we we able to stop on our way out of town and fill out a ballot. We proudly voted for the winner. My greatest pleasure though was last election was being in a hospital in Rochester and being able to vote against you. Schmuck!!!!!!

I called you a schmuck because of your past public statements you made regarding your attitude for the absentee ballot. I should have qualified it by calling you a political schmuck. Hey you did sell me a good car and I do enjoy a drink now and then! But at the time you seemed to be fished in by the Tim White and the Cape Vincent Democrats who went overboard to disenfranchise legal voters in that town and then into the last assy election where the Democrats are just plain embarrassing. New Democratic chair Tim White and his Aubertine-Wiley pals initiated a law suit making false claims against their opposing candidates and our elections commissioners Babbette and Jude. The Cape Vincent Democratic work for Addie Russell attempting to disenfranchise legal voters was the scum of the scum and the worse of the political trickery. Let's see if Tim White tries to pull the same crap on our elections commissioners and voting laws this time against three opponents.

If any voter is away or thinks they might be away from their polling place on election day they have a right to ask for a ballot or stop by the Elections Office to vote prior to the election day. If Babbette and Jude issues them an absentee ballot and the person uses it and then they fill it out properly then their vote is just as legal and that one cast at the polls.

I fear that this election MY democrats will go astray under Tim White and Cape Vincent influence.

There has not been one instance ever in my lifetime in Watertown and Jefferson County of a voter being allowed to commit voter fraud. And for Tim White and the Democrat party or any party for that matter to use that as a scare to keep any legal voter from casting a ballot is disputable and makes them a political schmuck.

6:56, anyone paying attention to the grosse political shenanigans in Cape Vincent for the last ten years, should have great reservations and fears for the Dem. Party under the leadership of Tim White. Unscrupulous, unethical, unprincipled, catering to special interest, bullying, nepotism, shortsightedness, incompetence.... Need any more??

Of course, none of this means that John Byrne is qualified to serve us in State Government, but it certainly gives one a reference point in the decision process.

Well now that the SCHMUCKS are outof the woodpile , someone better tell Byrne to turn up the energy . That debate performance was pitiful. I actually felt sorry for the guy he was lost in space and decidely VERY low energy .

If He gets into a debate with that characteristic someone will eat his lunch.

11:57 trouble is that's the real John Byrne. Unless someone is feeding him ideas, he hasn't much to offer. Great campaigner though! Lotsa energy.

For your information. The Tim White - Aubertine - Wiley tracker and donkey butt sniffer is a guy name Declan Callan. Declan believes the story the CV tweed ring likes to tell about being Irish. Hennnessssseey used to believe they were Irish, too.

No doubt that Tim White has learned his lessons in politics at the knee of the same mentor who groomed Daryl Aubertine into the less than ethical, poor example of leadership. That would be Harold Wiley, the venerable Boss Tweed of Cape Vincent himself. Woe to the residents of the region, if this family's politics become a driving influence.
