The Buffalo News editorializes on Erie Sheriff Tim Howard’s re-election:
“… An incumbent Republican sheriff who bashed the governor’s gun control law from January through Election Day and easily won re-election … Howard, who posted an impressive 52 percent victory in his three-way contest, is adamant about what the results say. “If Albany and the governor want to win the support of the people of Erie County, they’ve got to listen to us,” the sheriff said. “Nobody seems to measure the feeling. And it’s not about guns; it’s about the Constitution.” …”
Some downstate media pundits were saying that the Nassau and Westchester County Executive races would be a referendum on SAFE. Haven’t seen a follow-up similar to the Buffalo News op-ed from any of them yet.
