All politics is local

"You cannot judge a realignment by one election,"

"
* Upstate New York voters swung back to the GOP: Democrats saw their recent gains in districts long-held by Republicans vanish last Tuesday.
* Catholic voters: Veteran New York Democratic strategist Hank Sheinkopf noted that western New York is one of the most heavily Catholic parts of the country, and that Catholics are a key swing constituency. "It was religion and region that made the difference, not party ID," said Sheinkopf.
"New York is still very much a blue state, with 2.5 million more registered Democrats than Republicans,"

I am curious how Cuomo and the other statewide candidates did outside of NYC.
Our confinements remain confined.

I was concerned that once again NY is more of a one party state. I will say that Palladino made some statements that sunk him and we end up with Cuomo jr. I just hope he is better than his dad who was a disaster for the state.

It is a one party state (maybe not depending on NY Senate), but who is in charge?

House on Libya Re: General Election Thread

It may be theater, but seems to me historical.
The House has declared unwar or no ground troops in Libya. To be seen if this makes any difference.
A stronger resolution failed but with meaningful minority support from both parties.
 
Perhaps out of respect for the Commander in Chief and the military concerns in Libya, Rep. Maloney appears pro-war in this case.
