So they didn't have enough courage to take a secret vote against Cheney, but did one for Stefanik. Got it.

She seems perfect to lead the Republican Caucus. In earlier times, somebody who was a member of the Freedom Caucus (Chip Roy), or somebody with a strong conservative voting record would be a top choice. But now that the GOP platform has shifted from conservative and Freedom Caucus ideals to the single litmus test of bowing before the Rump. She's perfect.

Oh, I approve. I'd just add, " and they eat their own".

Yeah. She is getting crucified in every paper in the state--even the ones that have been sympathetic or agnostic in the past.

Her main advisor, the even more despicable Alex deGrasse, made a fool of himself on Twitter today in response to an article. More on this tomorrow. the #NY21 hashtag is going insane. Which is tiring.

NNY360 / Watertown Daily is a solid-right newspaper. Their editorial board endorsed Stefanik.

I have not yet found a real* newspaper in NY that is happy with my despicable congresswoman.

Editorial — The law or the mob? NNY is not certain if Stefanik favors democracy or anarchy

https://www.nny360.com/opinion/editoria ... 8d087.html
Unfortunately, Congresswomen Elise M. Stefanik bought into Trump’s stolen election charade. She had ably represented her constituents and her political party with her aggressive stance during the first Trump impeachment proceedings.

She did not leave it there. Instead, when voters spoke on Election Day and when not one of multiple court cases charging election fraud was sustained, Rep. Stefanik still took Trump’s bait and perpetuated the myth of a stolen election.

In a word, probably not, but way to early to tell.

In a paragraph: Tedra Cobb ran agasint Stefanik in 2018 and 2020 and got smooshed. I don't know if she's running again, but I'd just as soon let someone else have a try. Since we were redistricted (2014?), NY21 apparently has no chance of ever electing a dem rep again. I say this because it's been a topic of discussion on twitter for a year, i.e., whether our voters have really swung that far to the right, or if they're just massively uninformed. I've sadly come to accept that the former is likely true.

Don't know a think about the new guy, but look forward to learning about him.

People don't realize how big an area NY21 is. People talk about redistricting Stefanik out of existence (we lost a rep in this latest census--by 86 people), but it can't be done. No else to put the top third of the state.
