Skip to comments.Maloney sees opponent he defeated in November, Hayworth, as running anew (and Gibson query)

New York Democratic Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney of the 18th District tells WAMC that his vanquished November opponent, Republican ex-Congresswoman Nan Hayworth, may be gearing up for another run.
A) Is Hayworth worth a donation? I think she was elected in the 2010 wave (defeated in 2012), and apparently had Tea Party support. Did she stand by her principles? Sean Maloney is POS in the highest order.
B) Gibson seems to be in trouble against Eldridge (a queer). Any NY Freepers got a sense of this race. Is Gibson laying a groundgame?
Tough question. She certainly stood by her pro-abortion principles, which was a problem for many, and hurt her badly in 2012. She was an economic conservative, in a bland kind of way. I'm sure she got Tea Party support, but it's because the Dems in Westchester only nominate Leninists. From the northern part of her district, there wasn't much enthusiasm.
I guess she'd vote with the Tea Party 50 percent of the time, which is better than 0 percent.
From NY, that’s reasonably decent.
It seems in the House, the women are often more likely to stand on conservative principles than the men are. Virtually all the female Repubs were on the senate steps today making their voices heard. Boner nowhere to be seen.
Do you think Gibson might lose his seat?
