    As of this writing, Democrat Kathy Hochul leads Republican Jane Corwin and Democrat-turned-"tea party" candidate Jack Davis with 47.1 percent of the vote to 42.5 percent and 9.2 percent, respectively. New York's 26th Congressional District leans Republican, and so the party spin machines are already in overdrive trying to explain meaning of the election. Democrats (many of whom were adamant just six months ago that elections were about the economy and not policy positions) are claiming that this represents a massive upset victory in a district that John McCain won by six points, and that the race had become a...
  • Democratic ads also misleading, group says (FactCheck: NY-26 Dems Medicare claims false)

    WASHINGTON -- Democrats are grossly exaggerating Republican Medicare reform plans in ads in the local race for Congress, which "has become a national test market for distorted political claims," a nonpartisan watchdog group said. [Snip] Democratic groups are airing ads attacking Corwin for supporting a GOP budget plan that, for those under age 55, converts Medicare from a guaranteed government benefit to a system where the government subsidizes health insurance that seniors would buy. "Democrats are claiming this is tantamount to doing away with Medicare -- but that's far from the truth," FactCheck wrote. [Snip] "For example, a new ad...
  • Republicans play Pelosi card in New York special election (Hochul: Pelosi has "done a great job")

    Reporting from Washington  — Nancy Pelosi was a staple of Republican campaign ads in the 2010 midterm elections that led to her ouster as speaker of the House. But even out of power, the San Francisco Democrat is the featured villain in what has become the first major electoral test of 2011, a special Congressional election in western New York. The National Republican Congressional Committee's first television ad of the race in the state's 26th district, launched Monday (see below), portrays both Democratic candidate Kathy Hochul and independent candidate Jack Davis, who once ran for this seat as a Democrat but...

    n the special congressional election in western New York, a "Tea Party" candidate named Jack Davis is on the ballot. He is polling in the low 20s, and could cost Republican Assemblywoman Jane Corwin, a mainstream conservative, the election.

    The Tea Party Express went on the attack Monday against third-party candidate Jack Davis in the special election for ex-Rep. Chris Lee's (R-N.Y.) House seat. Leaders of the group were in Rochester to endorse Republican Jane Corwin in a tight three-way race against Democrat Kathy Hochul and Davis, who's running under the "Tea Party" banner. At a morning event in the district, Tea Party Express Chairwoman Amy Kremer labeled Davis "a phony." "Jack Davis is no more 'Tea Party' than Barack Obama," Kremer said, according to the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle. National Republicans and conservative activists have their sights set...
  • A New York Warning for the GOP (NY CD 26 Special Election & the Fake Tea Party Candidate)

    Good news for a politics-weary nation: Come May 24, the debate over the Paul Ryan budget reform plan will be over—almost before it began. Democrats win. Republicans lose. Long live blowout entitlements. That, at least, is the narrative being cast on the upcoming special election in New York's 26th congressional district. GOP candidate Jane Corwin had been handily ahead until several weeks ago, when Democrat Kathy Hochul began attacking her for supporting Mr. Ryan's plan. Polls have tightened, and Democrats and the media are now pitching the race as a "referendum" on GOP hopes to cut spending and reform entitlements...

    NY's 26th District Republican Needs HelpSeveral varieties of deception are threatening to turn the vacant seat blue. The race to succeed the chest-baring, Craigslist-dabbling congressman Chris Lee in upstate New York has not received much national notice. Events in Abbottobad have crowded out other stories. But Democrats are excited by a Siena College poll suggesting the possibility of an upset in the May 24 election. New York’s 26th congressional district stretches from the suburbs east of Buffalo to the suburbs west of Rochester — a mostly rural, white, and Republican part of New York. As Michael Barone notes in The...

    Republican leaders from New York's 26th district have picked a candidate to run in the upcoming special election for the seat. The district has been without representation since former Rep. Chris Lee left the House on Feb. 9 after the website Gawker.com reported the married Republican solicited a romantic encounter over the Internet, even sending the woman a photo of himself where he is shirtless. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) has 30 days to call a special election after a vacancy is declared, although it's unclear when that will happen. Meanwhile, GOP leaders from the seven counties in the...
