Look, I voted for Bret, but you gotta face the truth here. Schundler ran a vague, unfocused campaign, particularly in the last 6 weeks. You can make all the excuses you want, but politics is about winning, and there were ways to win.
As for the Dems' strategies, what do you expect from Democrats?
Bret made his mistakes, but to be honest, DiFrancesco's sabotage had a lot to do with this as well. Bret will be back. Clearly a lot of the establishment liked him enough in the first place to give him the shot. I think more will go to him because there is no place else to go.
Finally, I also have to admit that I'd like to see Bob Franks get in the mix again. Clearly, he's the type of guy who I might disagree with, but he is a team player. I only wish others in the establishment were the same. It might not have saved Bret's run, but it would have saved the State Legislature.
