Monroe County Democrats Not Showing Us Much So Far

Chairman Morelle Better Have Something Up His Sleeve Or It Will Be A Long Campaign For Democrats

I'm not sure what to make of the news, or lack thereof, concerning Democrats running for office in Monroe County. The Democrat and Chronicle had an interesting piece on this year's election.

Despite the headline stating that the loss of incumbents in some towns throwing a wrench into races for supervisor, the article states that Democrats have candidates in only 9 out of 19 towns. I think those 9 candidates they have includes at least 2 or 3 incumbents. There are now 37,000 more Democrats than Republicans and they only have candidates in less than half of the races!

There has also been shockingly little news about candidates for the county legislature. The candidates announced so far appear to be second or third stringers.

We will be watching and reporting on local races as details become availble. But for what has been billed as a Democratic assault on the local Republican party doesn't appear to be living up to expectations.

Looks like the dems are the odds on favorites to take the leg.
