Sean Eldridge (D CAND, NY-19 PRI) not really showing moral courage on #Syria.
I mean. Politicians are going to have to pick a side, here. Sean Eldridge, the soon-to-be Democratic congressional candidate and husband of New Republic owner Chris Hughes, is staying silent on the Syria debate, even as his opponent has stated firm opposition to a military strike. The Syria debate has put several candidates in a bind ahead of the 2014 elections — none more so | Read More »

Belated Congratulations to Chris Gibson (NY 20)
Cross posted to Upstate Political Report With this blog entry, I would like to offer a belated but heartfelt congratulations to Chris Gibson for winning the congressional election for New York’s 20th Congressional District! This was an amazing double digit point win. Gibson will enter Congress with a mandate. The people have clearly spoken and said they want real change. This was a hard fought | Read More »
Chris Gibson Rally at the Hall of Springs in Saratoga County, NY
While Bill Clinton spent his time on a last ditch effort to bail out Scott Murphy’s (D-NY 20) sinking fortunes at the Hall of Springs in Saratoga County, 250-300 supporters of Colonel Chris Gibson braved cold temperatures in the mid 30s to stand up for the kind of change New York’s 20th district needs. Rather than a Pelosi puppet who serves as her representative to | Read More »
Scott Murphy Supporters Don’t Care About the Law
Cross posted on Upstate Political Report Scott Murphy’s (D NY-20) campaign seems to be in a freefall as we head towards election day. From the campaign releasing an advertisement showing a digitized version of his opponent, Colonel Chris Gibson, riding an alligator and accusing Gibson of “feeding on the middle class” to supporters sending out mailers with ludicrous accusations, the stench of desperation is huge. | Read More »
Scott Murphy (D NY-20) making same mistakes as former opponent did in 2009
Cross posted on Upstate Political Report New York’s 20th congressional district has a huge Republican advantage in party registrations compared to Democrats. The 2006 election season was largely a Democrat year. Combined with the fact that all sorts of negative news came out about sleazy ex-Congressman John Sweeney, Democrat Kirsten Gillibrand was able to take the seat. In 2008, Gillibrand easily won reelection. In early | Read More »
Has Scott Murphy jumped the shark, er, gator?
Cross posted on Upstate Political Report Incumbent Democrat Scott Murphy (D-NY 20), one of the eight flip floppers on ObamaCare, released a rather entertaining ad this week, full of the standard Democrat class warfare fear inducing rhetoric. The ad reeks of desperation. First it was announced that in the last days of election season, Bill Clinton has to take precious time to campaign for Murphy | Read More »
Why would Scott Murphy (D-NY 20) need Bill Clinton’s help?
There are so few days between now and election day. There are numerous Democrat Senators and Congresspersons who need a boost in their sagging fortunes. Obama has been campaigning for various politicians, but his track record of campaigning for politicians such as Jon Corzine (ex-governor of New Jersey) and Martha Coakley (failed candidate for US Senate from Massachusetts) is not so good — in blue | Read More »
Bad Week for Congressman Murphy (D-NY 20)
Note: The following is a post written yesterday for another blog by a friend of mine named Mary Ziegler. She gave me permission to post it here to help get the word out… Mary has been an organizer for the local liberty movement since April of 2009 and is currently the organizer for Renewing the Republic, a group that encourages grassroots involvement in the political | Read More »
One Race to Win
The people of NY-20 have an easy choice in front of them. Vote for a dedicated American who has literally put his life on the line for his country, or vote for a politician whose self-interest is his top priority.

Colonel Chris Gibson (R) is challenging incumbent Scott Murphy (D) in New York’s 20th Congressional District.

Scott Murphy: Pork Cheerleader and Probable Dodge Ball Player
Cross posted on Upstate Political Report On September 1st, incumbent Democrat Congressman Scott Murphy (NY 20) did an interview with North Country Public Radio about his reelection campaign. I must say he probably was great at playing dodge ball. It’s only 11 minutes long and certainly worth a listen if you like boilerplate fluff. The interviewer noted that with a district that has a majority | Read More »
Paul Tonko: New York’s Top Double Dipper in the US House
Cross posted at Upstate Political Report Career politician and freshman Democrat US House member Paul Tonko (D-NY 21) has a great income courtesy the taxpayers. The New York Daily News recently did a spotlight on US House members from New York State who are double dipping from the taxpayers. In fact, Tonko is the clear winner, getting $64,641 annually from New York State on top | Read More »
Chris Gibson is correct about the depression: They do still teach economics in Albany, right?
By Sam Foster Via Capital Confidential H/T to Upstate Political Report Time to put my economics hat on and for many of my readers to take a nap. Jimmy Vielkind, an excellent writer/blogger for the Albany Times Union, seemed a bit flummoxed at Chris Gibson’s statement following last week’s debate (Chris Gibson is running against Democrat incumbent Scott Murphy for NY’s 20th Congressional District). I | Read More »
Scott Murphy Does More Last Minute Town Halls
For those who remember the children’s game Where’s Waldo I think a new game called Where’s Murphy? might be a hit. Scott Murphy, incumbent Democrat Congressman from New York’s 20th District, held lots of well announced town halls in 2009 only a few months after winning a special election. Now, in 2010, he seems to be pretty scarce. Murphy can claim that is he around | Read More »
