I’m sitting at the Lonely Conservative’s Kitchen Table as her son gets ready for school holding a union mailer hitting Ann Marie Buerkle:
A lot of Union Pension money has gone down the drain trying to keep Democrats afloat and I don’t think high-speed rail is going to be a winner but at least is at least one argument that doesn’t involve ladyparts.
and of Congressman Chris Gibson of the 19th district
Gibson is of those Freshman 2010 republicans defending a seat in a district where registration is within two points, of course his congressional office is totally separate from the political operation by law
From the 19th district I headed North
to the historic area of Saratoga
and the local office of Matt Doheny
who has taken up the mantle of Doug Hoffman.
It was the nicest building I’ve ever seen for a campaign office but unfortunately there was nobody there for me:
From there I spent 2 hours heading west to crash at the Lonely Conservative place (shades of 2010).
Today I’ll be hitting a forum in Clay Township where Ann Marie Buerkle is in a rematch with Dan Maffei.
I think it is one of the most interesting races in the country in the sense that you have the Democrat who was elected in the Obama wave of 2008 and a Republican elected in the Big Red wave of 2010.
With Mitt Romney clearly winning the presidency (MSNBC & Intrade not withstanding), the question that is left is: Is the backlash against Obama or against the GOP?
Two years ago I was in this same district when the local papers claimed Buerkle was down 11 before winning, She is in much better shape this time around, I’m sure a friendly Fedora won’t hurt.
That’s my Scott Brown sign I put out there, it’s already gotten some odd looks here in NY. I’ll explain why I transplanted it later today.
From that event, it’s back east, hitting the St. Kateri Tekakwitha shine and I’ll give another go to some other campaign locations hightailing it back to Fitchburg.
