  •  This seems to be the story of Reps in much of NY (0+ / 0-)

    or the whole north east for that matter.
    I think a factor in Hochuls win was also that the time was getting ripe.
    Yes it is the most republican area of NY-state, but that doesn't mean it hasn't been slowly blueing (or in this case turning purple) like the rest of upstate. And having first a third party candidate spending all his energy on smearing Corwin and then an appealing dem candidate with the right issues was just what it took to get enough disgruntled old time republicans to cross the line.
    This has not made it a blue area, but the days of rep hegemony is over, also post Corwin, Davis and Medicare-debate, I think.
