Boehlert is expected to announce his retirement shortly. The story can be found here. http://www.uticaod.com/...
Boehlert is one of the longest serving Representatives currently in the House. He serves an upstate NY district that leans Republican, although not by much. I grew up in this area and I think a strong Democratic candidate could do very well here. Most of Boehlert's recent opposition has been relatively weak. Are there any good candidates in the area?
