    All the money came in from outside and was mainly just ads, not boots on the ground.

         The commercials for Corwin are trite, hackneyed and everywhere.  Only in the last 48 hours or so have there been any with her speaking to the camera.  Hochul's been talking directly to the voters more often than not in her's.  The papers and newscasts have been telling everybody that Crossroads is Rove's baby.  And the Buffalo News hasn't been helping Calamity by making sure every single article they run on the race contains a reference to her support of the Ryan Bill and the video-stalking episode.
           Davis' commercials and mailers are HORRIBLE.  The really depressing "China stole my job and gave my wife cancer" commercial isn't doing him any good.  And on Friday, he sent out a mailer that opened into a newspaper with nothing but crappy black-and-white line drawings of Hochul as a mule and Corwin as an elephant, easily the worst campaign lit I've ever seen.
          Davis and Corwin are both outspending Kathy Hochul and her supporters but its money down a rat hole so far.

        verybody that Crossroads is Rove's baby.  And the Buffalo News hasn't been helping Calamity by making sure every single article they run on the race contains a reference to her support of the Ryan Bill and the video-stalking episode."

        But why would that turn teabagger Davis voters toward Hachul?
