NY-26: Lead Candidates (Both Women, Both Moms) Run on Issues, Not Image
And I breathe a sigh of relief. Because seriously, I hate when it gets all “I’m better because I’m a mom and she was never a mom” or “I bake cookies better than she does” (even though that’s the spouses).
From the looks of it, the media has stuck to the issues in how its covered the race between Republican State Assemblywoman Jane Corwin and Erie County Clerk Kathy Hochul (the Democratic candidate).* Why? Because both of these candidates have run before, both have no excuse to not know their local community and what they will and won’t put up with and last but not least? The congressman they’re replacing, Chris Lee, gave the district enough taste of salacious political notoriety for 2011.
Move on – nothing to see here. Except whether supporting the Paul Ryan approach to the budget is a vote killer.

*Jack Davis is running as a third-party candidate but the Tea Party doesn’t really want to own him and his numbers in the polls have collapsed into inevitable failure territory.
