I "used to" like Kathy Hochul {I emphasize "used to"}... actually voted for her both times she ran for Congress.

Hochul was very friendly toward gun owners and the 2nd Amendment when she was Erie Co Exec,. and when she campaigned for Congress. She even was A rated by the NRA. I heard it reported this AM on WBEN radio [but can't confirm it yet] that she originally was opposed to the SAFE Act...

What a flip-flop!

Cuomo said: “Who are they?” “Are they these extreme conservatives, who are right to life, pro-assault weapon, anti-gay? Is that who they are? Because if that is who they are and if they are extreme conservatives, they have no place in the state of New York."

Anyone who supports a tyrant that talks like this is beyond liberal... more like dishonorable. Now that she has shown her true colors, I guess that includes Kathy Hochul too.

Ms.Hochul was against medical marijuana, and the legalization of pot, at least that was her position when she was running for congress.

First thought: Why does Kathy Hochul suddenly remind me of John Kerry?

Second thought: She may want to have a very long and very private chat with Lt. Governor Duffy. I suspect she has absolutely no idea of what a pit of vipers she will be dumped into if elected into the NYC run state government. She is a token provincial added to the ticket for appearances sake and the move is as sincere as a call girl's affection.

I suspect there isn't enough hot water and soap in the whole of New York State to wash the stench of downstate politics off of a Western New Yorker who takes a dip into the cesspool which is downstate politics.
