Errigo Confirms Mustard Street Report

Assemblyman Joe Errigo today went public with what we told you three weeks ago.   He's not running for re-election.

David Nachbar will be the Democratic nominee this fall in Errigo's 130th Assembly District.

Top contenders for Republican nomination:  former State DEC Regional Director Sean Hanna, of Mendon, lawyer and radio talk show host Bill Nojay, of Pittsford, and former county legislator Robert Zinck, of Henrietta.

I agree that Nachbar will probably run for this seat, but he was shooting his mouth off to CQ last week, saying he might run for the 29th seat in the general:

I'm sure he'd rather have the 29th seat that waste away in the Assembly.

Thanks for your comment. On Nachbar, we had this from the inside. He thinks winning the 29th this year is too much of a long shot.

Morelle and Silver are putting the Democratic Assembly money into Morelle's race and the race for the Susan John district. Nachbar can finance his own campaign, which is why he was prevailed on to run. Our source tells us he's agreed.

If Morelle does have a serious campaign opponent this year, now is the time for the GOP to try and take out Koon and make a real push for John's seat. Morelle will suck up all the local campaing funding, the Democrat party staff and all the foot soldiers to save his sorry arse. Koon and the 131st Dem candidate will suffer because of Morelle's selfishness and arrogance.
