NY13 Blog; Retaking NY-13 from Rep. Vito Fossella

Following the corruption, ineffectiveness and hypocrisy of Rep. Vito Fossella.

Now where do we go?

On the Republican side I see two options;

1. DA Dan Donovan is the Republican nominee with a cleared field
2. Sen. Lanza jumps into the fray to challenge Donovan

On the Democratic side things get interesting;

1. I only expect one of the three Staten Island candidates to enter; Savino, Cusick or McMahon. The party wants to have a Staten Islander representing them and will get behind one candidate in order to not split the island vote.
2. In most scenarios I see Recchia dropping out. He has not shown any interest in campaigning and has been looking for a way to get out of this after not being handed the nomination.
3. Harrison as I have said before is the only candidate whose path to the primary is not very dependent on what the others do.

The Independence Party is interviewing the candidates on Sunday and WFP is interviewing next week. New candidate speculation post tomorrow evening.
