    Thanks for republishing to NY State. I haven't been around much on DK4, so wasn't sure how to do that.

      Given that the Dems are going to lose one downstate congressional seat the conventional wisdom has been that Weiner's seat was going to be eliminated.  Is that still a working assumption?

        I have no insider info, but from what I understand, that is the case. This race is ironically more important nationally, due to the media spin that would follow a Turner win, than it is for NYers.

          One good thing Bloomberg is doing is challenging the census figures fr the city, and especially for the outer boroughs. Depending on how successful this is, maybe we can keep this seat.

          Weprin is a good, decent guy, if far more conservative than I am, but he's unfortunately a terrible candidate. I've seen him speak in person, as well as hearing a recent radio interview that I can only characterize as disastrous, so I know what I'm talking about. Nevertheless, I am committed to doing what I can to get him elected.

          The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.
