Gillibrand Campaign and NY-20 gaining momentum

It's been a bad week for Rep. John E. Sweeney (R, NY-20). It was a bad month for John Sweeney. For that matter it has been a bad year for the incumbent (as it has been for most Republican incumbents) and it really began going downhill for him in Sep. of last year.

And there are no signs it is going to get any better for him in the coming month or the remaining 220 days.

Kirsten Gillibrand and Ethics in Congress

It's been a really busy time for me the last few months and I've been remiss in letting folks know about the really fantastic candidate running for office in my congressional district. Her name is Kirsten Gillibrand and she is exactly the kind of Democrat we want to send to Washington.

Similarly distressing for Sweeney...

Sweeney Holding His Ground... in DC... not NY-20

Cross posted from The 10,000 Things

Our friends over at News Copy, New York (a very good blog for reading up on the Republican side of things by the way) seem to be big fans of Rep. John Sweeney. Fair enough. It would be nice however, if they got all their facts straight... or at least shared all of them... while engaging in defense of their favorite son.

(Speaking of favorite sons they seem quite fond of Democrat Tom Suozzi over there as well - given the state of affairs amongst Republican Gubernatorial candidates I can understand why they would like a quality Democrat and given the dearth of quality Republican candidates at any high level it becomes easy to understand why they are trying so hard to find likeable qualities in John Sweeney)

As posted here previously Mr. Sweeney's calls for new Republican leadership...
