Disillusionment With New York State Government Keeps Voters From the Polls - November 18, 2010 - The New York Sun
The failure of the State GOP to unseat Christine Gillibrand, due mostly to being saddled with an unelectable candidate for Governor, displayed a level of incompetence that would be actionable if displayed by anyone in a position of responsibility in a business. It is possible to speculate that if a serious and electable candidate was at the head of the ticket then all the names down the ballot for the GOP might have gotten a 10% boost. That would not have neant victory in all cases but it would have meant a competitive election. Carl Paladino ran like the second coming of Abe Hirschfeld.
