Appeals to the grassroots: NY-20, IL-05.
NY-20: The recount for this race – which is actually at plus 25 right now, not plus 57 – is going to be expensive. There’s a new pledge drive up to pay for that recount, in the same style as the one that gathered over 120K for Jim Tedisco: I encourage people to help out there, or where they can. It’s already at 9K (the | Read More »
Recap of the NY-20 race.
Scott Murphy (D) is ahead by 65 votes. Nobody’s calling this race just yet. There are somewhere between six and ten thousand absentee ballots that need to be counted. They’re not being counted tonight. They’re not being counted for another week. (Via AoSHQ) You see, we do, in fact, actually learn from our mistakes. The deadline for overseas absentee ballots is actually April 13th. All | Read More »
Exporting/Expanding BLUE-ism… shaping elections to come.
Exporting/expanding BLUE-ism (Liberal, Progressive, Socialist, politics)…. Shaping the Electoral Maps of the future…. All of this aside from the growth of illegal activities (read: ACORN, Liberal Judges in ultra-Liberal Districts ordering Polls to remain open late [Early- (and the new Late-) Voting trends], and other [Voting Psychology (Bandwagon and other effects) coupled with MSM bias attempts to mold/shape turnout] hi-jinks) to pad Democrat vote totals… | Read More »

The NY-20 special election is tomorrow.
And it will be close. I’m thinking that it’s a squeaker for Tedisco, unless of course this particular ad: …clarifies matters for NY-20. Also: it’d be nice if Tedisco broke 120K online, huh? contribute: Crossposted to Moe Lane.
New York to tax top earners.
To sum up the New York Times article: New York Democrats in the Assembly have come to an agreement with New York Democrats in the Senate and the New York Democrat in the Governor’s office to raise state taxes on all incomes above $300,000/year. This is felt to be the best way to handle the looming 3.2 billion deficit in taxes from the previous projected | Read More »
NY-20 update: an endorsement and a removal.
The New York Post has announced for Tedisco, citing his experience over Scott Murphy, Tedisco’s better ideological fit to this district, Tedisco’s record of fiscal restraint, and – interestingly – Murphy’s refusal to support the death penalty for even 9/11 terrorists. And in other news, the Libertarian candidate has been disqualified for the second election cycle running from being on the ballot. Problems with the | Read More »
Cuomo Won’t Challenge NY Governor Paterson
I would have bet the house against this: New York State Attorney General Andrew Cuomo said despite recent polls showing him far ahead of Governor David Paterson in a gubernatorial primary, he wants to stay on as the state’s chief legal officer. “I hope the people think that I’ve been delivering for them as attorney general,” he said Tuesday night at Schenectady County Community College. | Read More »
There’s a week to go until NY-20.
They had a debate last night, where Tedisco hit Murphy over the ‘stimulus’ bill that the former opposes and the latter supports. Congressional Democrats are hungry for this race, no matter that Obama/DNC (I repeat myself) don’t want to get involved. contribute: We’re making the Democratic Party spend money on a race that their own ideology says that they should be winning handily, and they’re | Read More »
Poughkeepsie Journal endorses Jim Tedisco (R Cand, NY-20) for Congress.
The Poughkeepsie Journal – which endorsed Obama for President – has endorsed Jim Tedisco for next week’s special election: The 20th Congressional District seat – which includes much of northern Dutchess County – has been without a representative for about two months now. In many ways, this could not have come at a worse time. With the economy teetering, Congress has been moving at a | Read More »
Gov. Paterson (D-NY): AIG Contribution not related to AIG rescue.
Good thing that he cleared that up: AIG’s $100G donation to Democrats was unknown to Gov. Paterson, he says Gov. Paterson stuck to his guns Saturday, insisting he knew nothing about a $100,000 donation from AIG to the state Democratic Party days before his office helped save the insurance giant. State Republicans charged the Democrats with stonewalling an investigation into the Aug. 29 donation, uncovered | Read More »
By the way, we’re having a trade war with Mexico.
Yes, yes, I know: NAFTA’s supposed to prevent that sort of thing, but we’re having one anyway: Ricardo Alday, spokesman for the Mexican Embassy in Washington said pressuring politicians by hitting imports from states with key Democratic leaders with tariffs of up to 90 percent “is one the main considerations,” for the action, the Dallas Morning News reported Wednesday. The official list of products has | Read More »
An open letter to my Congressman re: HR 1586
The following is a letter submitted to the office of my Congressman, John McHugh, Dist. 23, NY. And, frankly, to all our Congressmen. This will be cross-posted at SLC Republitarian and sent to local papers today. Dear Sir, When you took office, you swore to uphold the Constitution. This is the document which defines our nation, and as such, which must be the standard to | Read More »
Scott Murphy (D Cand, NY-20): ‘One of them.’
Jim Tedisco reminds us that Murphy may have an inclination towards giving bonuses to companies losing money… …although that may not be an entirely fair comparison. After all, back then Murphy’s bonus scheme didn’t involve your money. I wonder if he’s still for passing that miscalled “stimulus” bill – Tedisco is on the record as opposing it, mind you – and I wonder if Murphy | Read More »
Why is Scott Murphy (D Cand, NY-20) soliciting $4,800 contributions?
Here’s the screenshot, taken this morning: As you can clearly see, he’s still asking for campaign contributions for both the primary and general election… even though the primary is over. There are rules about maximum donations, and he’s violating them. The regulating agency for this one is the FEC, not the NY State Board of Elections: unfortunately, they only take notarized letters (info on how | Read More »
