Primary for Gianaris

The City reports:

State Sen. Michael Gianaris’ vocal opposition to scuttling Amazon’s New York headquarters has put a target on his back: He faces a likely primary challenge for the first time since being elected to the State Senate in 2010. Justin Potter, a newcomer to politics and to the Democratic Party, has registered a campaign committee and says he’s exploring a run to dislodge Gianaris, who has held the seat since 2011 …”

I have no idea what Potter’s position on the issues are, but it doesn’t matter. Democrats outnumber Republicans in SD-12 by better than 7 to 1. The only way to knock Gianaris is in a primary where turnout is very low. 2A advocates should support Potter in order to stick it to Gianaris.

“What accomplishments in your past would you cite as evidence you can handle this job? … We also banned the gun show from our County Center as soon as our new Democratic majority took office, the must-do item that pushed me into elective politics in the first place …”

Dutchess Democrats attack Molinaro, Truitt

The Dutchess County Democrats are trying to attack Marc Molinaro and County Legislator Will Truitt by somehow implying that guns = hate (I guess).

First off, Truitt didn’t shoot that donkey picture and they deleted his comment:

Second, that Molinaro letter is old. As far as I’m concerned he burned his bridges during last year’s laughable gubernatorial campaign.
