The interesting thing about news is that the same event can produce different takes. I read the WDT version of the NY21 debate and it was a recitation of stands on various issues while the TV coverage of course focuses on Donald Trump. Rep. Stefanik called for Mr. Trump to release his taxes and said she disagreed with the candidate's stance on immigration but feels he is the best hope to work with a GOP Congress on other issues. Local media has been hot to tie Ms. Stefanik to Mr. Trump as they think that's a bad thing.
Many local Republicans have been critical of party leaders being so lukewarm on the top race.
I still haven't heard anyone press the Democrat in the race on whether he supports Hillary Clinton and how he reconciles her national security and email issues.
