Kudos to Kathy Hochul, she ran a very good campaign stuck with a factual argument and is by far more likeable than Jane Corwin and much better lookng than Jack Davis or Ian Murphy.

While I admit I'm disappointed my friend Jack Davis did not do better he remaind true to his long time message embracing opposition to the free trade agreements and the WTO.

Kathy Hochul, has been a superb county clerk and will be a effective Member of Congress for our representing district. For once the good people of NY-26 have gotten what they deserve, a voice for the people elected by the people. Good luck and Godspeed Representitive Hochul you are our voice, may you be heard loud and clear.
