Lawn signs of New York

Wednesday, October 06, 2010 - 12:51 PM

There's a lot of semi-scientific evidence suggesting Republicans are more enthusiastic about heading to the polls this November. Here's one more: New York 1 News political director Bob Hardt makes this observation to Capital New York after a drive in Buffalo:

"I saw dozens of Paladino lawn signs. Obviously, that’s his neck of the woods but it also shows a level of excitement and interest in the race that’s not mirrored downstate in areas that will go heavily for Cuomo. (Have you seen a single Cuomo lawn sign anywhere?)"

Already, a few people have told me, via Twitter and FaceBook, that they have indeed seen Cuomo lawn signs.

So, feel free to email me photos of any notable lawn signs: Cuomo's, Paladino's, candidates for dog catcher, whichever ones you come across.
