NY-26 Results Open Thread.
[THIRD UPDATE] And AP calls it for Hochul. Pity. We will no doubt hear in short order about how this is a veritable stake through conservatism, the Right, the Tea Party, the Republican party, George W Bush, and probably the Easter Bunny. If that bugs you: well, this is defeat. Avoid it. [SECOND UPDATE]: Folks, you may want to step back from this one for | Read More »
NY-26: Democrats Finally Succeeded Using The Tea Party Brand
Jane Corwin, a good Republican candidate for the NY-26 district, might lose today because a former Democrat claimed the Tea Party mantle syphoning votes away. So. A solid Republican district gets lost to a Democrat due to shenanigans. It’s nowhere near done yet, so if you’re in that district in New York, please, go vote! Democrats have tried to co-opt the Tea Party name in | Read More »
NY-26 Special Election today.
Jane Corwin is, of course, the Republican/Conservative running in this race – which is getting people nervous because of the latest Siena poll*. To which I say: then make sure that you go out and vote. And if you don’t want Democrats to win elections, then do something about it. I mention this last bit because there are roughly sixteen million Left-pundits out there who | Read More »
Jack Davis (FAKE, NY-26) hits cameraman.
I believe that we have finally established, once and for all, that this guy is a Democrat: Jack Davis takes swings at cameramen. Although he needs a buddy to help, of course. JANE CORWIN FOR NY-26. Moe Lane [UPDATE]: Via Legal Insurrection, I see that the Davis campaign is well-versed in the ancient Democratic art of blame-the-victim. Free advice, folks: don’t take a swing. Don’t | Read More »
Jack Davis (FAKE CAND, NY-26) cuts and runs from debates.
He’s officially decided to not do any debates with the official Democratic candidate (and actual Republican/Conservative candidate Jane Corwin). The ostensible reason is because – wait for it, wait for it! – Davis is claiming his opponents are liars who won’t play fair. Given Davis’s likely status as a stalking horse for the Democratic party, such a comment would normally score chutzpah points with me. | Read More »
Two new NY-26 ads.
Both of which are hitting Jack Davis, who is doing his level best to throw the special election there to the Democrats. Davis, for those who do not remember, has been running as a Democrat in this district for years, and is now cynically trying to use the Tea Party name to hurt the GOP this year: he’s also a somewhat insane fellow who wants | Read More »
Are New York Tea Partiers Really Willing to Sell Out?
There’s a special election happening in New York’s 26th Congressional District and tea party activists up there look increasingly like they are either being duped or selling out. There are three candidates in the race, a Republican, a Democrat, and a self-described tea party candidate named Jack Davis. As Democrats are doing more and more around the country, it appears they are setting up Davis | Read More »
Meet Jane Corwin (R/C/I-CAND, NY-26).
The R/C/I stands for “Republican/Conservative/Independence:” New York is one of those fusion states with viable third parties, thanks mostly to the rule that votes for the same person on different “lines” can be combined and count towards the total vote total. We’ll address whether that’s a good idea or not at a different time; for right now, I spoke with Assemblywoman Jane Corwin this morning | Read More »
Jack Davis (FAKE-CAND, NY-26) thinks Tea Partiers are idiots.
Jack Davis is, of course, the former Democrat trying to run in NY-26, which is up for a special election this spring (the Republican/Conservative Party candidate, equally of course, is Jane Corwin). Davis, having been completely unable to get any traction in getting elected thus far, has decided to go one step further than such Democratic party luminaries such as Michael McGuinness and Alan Grayson; | Read More »
NY-26 update: Jane Corwin endorsed by Conservative Party.
Background: Republican Christopher Lee rather abruptly resigned from that seat over, of all things, a Craigslist ad (well, that and the attempts at adultery associated with it). It’s a fairly reliably Republican district – Lee first won it in 2008, which was not exactly a great year for a Republican to win an open seat in the Northeast – so any real hope that the | Read More »
NY GOP picks Jane Corwin for NY-26 special election.
The seat, of course, was vacated by Chris Lee as part of what was a somewhat bizarre Craigslist meltdown. Ms. Corwin is herself a state Assemblywoman who was first elected in 2008 after defeating the Republican candidate in the primary; she’s previously run on the Conservative ticket in NY and has been endorsed by Paladino (who won this district in 2010). Jane Corwin has been | Read More »
