I’m sitting right now in the Fishkill offices of Congresswomen Nan Hayworth waiting to hear back from campaign officials concerning her race here in NY-18.
Oddly enough I stayed at the local Days Inn under a mile from here
but when I found out Zilla of the Resistance who I hoped to visit with was in a local hospital I decided to swing up first to see her and how she is doing.
This was a bit of a shock to me but not as much of a shock to those who have falsely claimed that Zilla either was not sick or not even a woman
You know I’m always hoping for a tip jar hit (and I’ll ask for one below) but if you can only afford to give to one of us, I think Zilla could use it more.
From the Hospital I headed back to Fishkill and saw the Hayworth Office where they staff kindly allowed me some space to work:
and a little bit of Hayworth swag
As a rule I don’t take yard signs as they are most valuable in the district.
Hayworth’s district is small compared to some of the large one farther north:
But the fight is just as tough, the left has predictably been using their standard “War on Women” lines, the fact that Nan Hayworth is not only a woman but a medical doctor doesn’t seem to have caused any kind of ripple in this nonsense. It certainly doesn’t seem to faze the overwhelmingly female staff that I met in the office.
There is however a real interesting issue concerning this race. Nan’s opponent Sean Maloney who apparently is looking for a spot in the group Manhattan Transfer since he has done is best to try to convince the voters of the district that he has transferred himself to this district from Manhattan, but two days ago during the Debate on Tuesday bragged about being involved in a company that created 100’s of jobs.
It is an effort to change the complexion of a race that RCP has +7 for Hayworth at the moment but I suspect this boast might have costs as apparently this company has more to it than meets the eye, in fact it has more to it that some folks on the left might not want in front of the voters eyes…but that for my next post.
Let me leave you with this thought
The only “war on women” is by the left against people like Nan who won’t blindly follow their lead. You can kick into her campaign here.
