The HOTLINE got an honorable mention on the front page of the WDT today as scribe Brian Molongoski wrote a tome about the 116AD Assembly race. The race between John Byrne and incumbent Addie Russell seems to focus on GOP criticism of her voting record and the Democrat bringing into focus Mr. Byrne's past which brought him here some years ago from Oneonta where he had failed businesses and run-ins with state regulators.
Ms. Russell's excoriation of Mr. Byrne on the HOTLINE made news, and the Republican has said he will come on soon to return fire.
Funniest spin line comes from a good man...GOP Chair Don Coon says Mr. Byrne's business dealings are off limits because of Ms. Russell's unfamiliarity in running a business.
Voters need to know how candidates got to where they are now in asking for the trust of the public.
It's as much an issue as Ms. Russell's voting record or professional history, and we will see how the GOP candidate does on taking it to his foe when he visits the HOTLINE soon.
