I’ve been remiss in not adding the special election in New York’s 20th District to my list of races. It is one of RNC Chairman Michael Steele’s priorities, and it is important to me as well.
The word on the street is that for now-Sen. Kristen Gillibrand’s seat to be filled, Gov. David Paterson has to call for a special election. Being a dutiful Democrat, he’s avoided doing that for the past 14 days.
Why? Because it’s a red district, and the Republican candidate, Jim Tedisco, is ahead in the polls.
We need to get on this as soon as possible. So while you’re calling you Senator about the porkulus bill, make sure to place a call to Gov. Paterson’s office as well.
His number is 518-474-8390, and you can e-mail him here.
Oh, and in keeping with Democratic Party rules, their nominee is a tax cheat.
