The Democratic Bench: Janele Hyer-Spencer, part II

As we see the Republican Party fall all around Fossella we see great progress for the Democratic Party. As seats are contested the Democratic Party is showing strength and resolve in New York State. After the Congressional race the next top tier race in the district would have to be Assembly member Hyer-Spencer's seat. After losing her first run at the 60th AD, she pulled off a hard fought victory in 2006, winning by 700 votes. Her performance for her district in Albany has been superb and
her former opponent has taken note

Anthony Xanthakis, the party first vice chairman who was expected to launch a rematch against Assemblywoman Janele Hyer-Spencer (D-East Shore/Brooklyn), last night said he would not run.

from November 8, 2008;

While the implications may be a little more long term, winning very local elections is one way we will retake this Congressional seat, if meerly by reducing the experienced Republican bench.

Janele was the first candidate who took this blog seriously and reached out on several occassions with political knowledge and insight. She impressed me with some early and rather intelligent web research/outreach team. Best of luck to her in Albany. It will be nice to see Assemblywoman Hyer-Spencer campaigning along side our '08 congressional candidate, that is if she is not the nominee.
