I suppose that if the stars aligned in the perfect formation, Bob Turner could pull this off.

IIRC, Wendy Long is the daughter of Mike Lonk, the chairman of NY's Conservative Party.

David Duke endorses leading New York Democrat Charles Barron!

Karen Klein's school bus bullies receive death threats

FReepmail me if you want on or off my New York ping list.

P.S. Charles Barron is a major league racist. If he gets in Congress, his voters won't look good.

Wellll...

It does make for a nice, entertaining “what-if” scenario, anyway. Kind of like winning the lottery.

I can’t believe that NR ran an article about the NY Senate election that didn’t even mention how if Turner beats Long in the primary she’ll still be on the GE ballot as the Conservative Party nominee, making Turner’s chances go from slim to none. CP President Michael Long hand-picked Wendy Long as the CP nominee (instead of letting primary voters decide) long before the GOP primary field was even set, which are his typical strong-arm tactics to try to blackmail GOP primary voters to nominate his preferred candidate or else allow the conservative vote to get split. And Michael Long doesn’t always pick the most conservative candidate: he hand-picked Rick Lazio over Tom Golisano in 2010. Conservatives railed against Long for allowing the vote to be split, but the CP was saved the embarrassment of getting under 5% in the gubernatorial race and being nothing but a spoiler party because Lazio agreed to be nominated for an unwinnable judicial race, which was the only way save moving out of state to be able to vacate the nomination and allow allow the CP to nominate Golisano.

Nothing against Wendy Long, but Bob Turner is just as conservative as she is, and he was willing to run in NY-09 earlier this year. Why should Michael Long get to trump the will of Republican primary voters? I hope that Turner wins just so Michael Long gets knocked down a couple more pegs and has to put his tail between his legs again and ask Wendy Long to move to New Jersey or something.

As a New Yorker “on the ground” I think this story should get some of it's assumptions straight. I was young and could just vote for Pataki first time around, and I voted for Al D’Amato but neither of those elections were “upsets” to me.

Pataki was going to win because he was the Cuomo alternative, Cuomo had turned from arrogant to even beyond NY arrogant, self-centered, and acted like he couldn't lose as he was God's gift to NY. He spent like Obama. Even NYer’s drew the line at that back then. I think that's why Cuomo JR plays it humble. Schumer set himself up as the champion of the little guy and some how kept his pompous, know it all self under raps until he got himself well established in the Democrat party and all their state party tentacles that reach all over the state. He painted D’Amato as out-of-touch and promised to represent all New Yorkers and Al's final Senate campaign lacked any enthusiasm. New Yorkers fell for Schumers act and we got stuck with him.

“But New York does have a history of interesting statewide upsets — Chuck Schumer over Al D’Amato”

‘interesting’ is not the word I would use for the election of Chuckee “Where’s the nearest microphone?” Schumer. I would use another word, one I couldn’t post without violating FR’s no profanity rules. :-)

Turner will win the primary and then get clobbered unless Dems stay home in droves. The only reason an upset could occur is that if enough Bama voters split their tickets and if Dems are so tired of Bama, they also just do not vote. Liberal bastions like NY are pits of .............

Republican US Senate Candidate Wendy Long said this morning on Fred Dicker’s radio show on Talk 1300 AM that she would support the GOP nominee for US Senate – after being asked repeatedly by Dicker.

The first few times she was asked, Long insisted that she was fully confident that she would be the nominee. She said the same thing to Capital Tonight when we interviewed her last week.

When pressed on what she would do if she lost the primary, she eventually said, “I will support the GOP nominee” though she never wavered on her insistence that she will win on June 26.

Long has already secured the Conservative Party’s backing in the race. If she lost the GOP nomination but continued to run as a conservative, with a different candidate on the GOP line, she’d likely split the vote and end up killing any chance for the Republicans to defeat Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand.

Long is an attorney though, and if she lost the GOP primary, the Conservative party could nominate her for a judge race, freeing up the conservative line for the GOP winner.

She spent her entire term obsessed with gays marriage and the need for more women in politics. I challenged her on Facebook (I got banned from her page), called her office and emailed her (no response), and her staff are full of idiots with no idea of her votes or the bills up for vote. And she wears granny hose. And yet she may win in a landslide.
