Capitol in Albany
Liz Benjamin, host of Capital Tonight, blogger, talks about the congressional and state races.
Nan Hayworth lost because she did nothing! She would not meet with people, office hours were not for people. Review her website: she must be a Very Smart person, yet she voted Against issues for people and the elderly and then proudly said in her ads how she voted for the elderly and people. She had signs all over the place, maybe every 100 yards and Many mailings. That is, she spent a fortune to be reelected.Also I feel that WNYC has MANY followers/listeners in the Hudson Valley and should have reviewed this situation in depth. She lost because she didn't work for anyone in the Hudson Valley, not because of her gender.
Seth Pickenstiff HARD ON ED? every day he posts about abortion, as if it is the only worry the world has. and i doubt he has ever been pregnant with an unwanted child, he is shameful and hateful. things could be harder for the eds of this world
The lower Hudson Valley is the exact opposite of hip.
hjs, you're a lil' hard on Ed, ouch, but Ed, those are the questions, and you have been called to answer. speak up, dude, or shut up.
I pleased and proud to be among those whose one-term congressional representative lost. Voters in the Hudson Valley woke up and realized that Nan Hayworth was simply too closely tied to pharmaceutical companies and medical associations to be trusted with the task of maked health care decisions for them.
ed YEAH DEATH!! thats why i always votehey ed how are you helping the born and unwanted?how are u helping the the poor kids in the bronx?whats your view on the death penaltyand the wars? do you get off when we bomb brown people? the republicats offer different types of death
YM from NYC ny times has all the numbershttp://elections.nytimes.com/2012/results/states/new-york
is there a website to go for a complete breakdown of the election results?I voted GREEN party and couldn't find a place that broke down the number of state and national votes for the smaller parties running for Pres.
We voted for the culture of death instead of the culture of life. We can't expect anything good, either nationally, or in New York, which is the exponent of the culture of death in many ways.
