Stephanie Miller is elated today the the Dem won the special House election in the NY 26. She proclaimed that the district which has been solid red for the past 100 years has come of age and realized that only the Dems can properly represent Western NY State. That might be true except for one minor detail The Dem did NOT get the majority vote. It was actually a 4 way race. A Tea Party candidate recd about 10% which was the spoiler for the Republicans. Corwin (R) was also on the Conservative and Independence lines. (Green party = 1%) I am not sure, why the Tea party put up a separate candidate against a conservative Republican. Will see if I can find out. Wonder what Steph will say in NOV of 12 when the Republicans retake the 26th seat? Will keep you posted.
