Unfortunately, Frank Merola, who would have been a very strong candidate to replace Kathy Marchione in the New York Senate decided not to run. The Times Union is reporting that six candidates are planning to primary for the position. Kathy Marchione was an outspoken advocate for gun owners and against Emperor Andy’s unSAFE act and depopulate upstate NY agenda. Several candidates sound positive in the TU article here but none seem to have the name recognition Merola would have had during the election.
Be careful and tread lightly picking a favorite as Andy is a master puppeteer and has been recruiting NY Senate candidates an article here this year. It is not beyond the pale to think he would pick a Republican candidate to serve his ends.
