    With barely five days to go before New York's June 24 primary, speculation is mounting as to whether Rep. Richard Hanna is going to the next Republican U.S. House member after Virginia's Eric Cantor to lose renomination. While House Majority Leader Cantor's loss was fueled largely by his support on immigration reform and extending the debt ceiling — both issues that angered tea party Republicans — two-termer Hanna has many more positions hostile to conservatives. More significantly, Cantor was defeated by an obscure college educator, David Brat, while Hanna, 63, faces a well-known conservative figure in State Assemblywoman Claudia Tenney.

    Carl Paladino, the conservative businessman who pulled off an upset to win the Republican primary in the 2010 New York's governor's race, is counting on Assemblywoman Claudia Tenney to pull off a similar upset in the state's 22nd Congressional District. Paladino said today he will back Tenney, R-New Hartford, in her GOP primary campaign against U.S. Rep. Richard Hanna, R-Barneveld, the two-term Republican who faces his second consecutive challenge from his party's conservative base.

    A Republican congressman disenchanted with his party's stance on women's issues urged attendees at a rally to give money to Democrats to send a message to the GOP. "I think these are very precarious times for women, it seems. So many of your rights are under assault," Rep. Richard Hanna (R-N.Y.) told a crowd at a rally in Washington, D.C., for the Equal Rights Amendment, according to the Huffington Post. "I'll tell you this: Contribute your money to people who speak out on your behalf, because the other side — my side — has a lot of it. And you...

    As the campaign season entered its final weeks, the area’s two incumbent congressmen were outspending their Republican challengers by wide margins. Of course, they had more to spend — a lot more. For the quarter ending Sept. 30, Rep. Dan Maffei, D-25 of Syracuse, took in $366,805 in net contributions. Challenger Ann Marie Buerkle took in less than half of that: $147,888. In the 24th District, incumbent Democrat Mike Arcuri of Utica outraised challenger Richard Hanna by a smaller margin, $256,291 to $138,527.... 24th District While Hanna had the fundraising edge early in the campaign, Arcuri quickly regained it, and...

    Republican Congressional candidate Richard Hanna has raised more than $350,000 in the last eight weeks, his campaign said Saturday. Hanna, who is challenging incumbent Democrat Michael Arcuri in the 24th district, said in a press release that he was “humbled and grateful for the enormous support.” His campaign said 91 percent of the individual donations came from within the district, which includes the city of Geneva and parts of Ontario and Seneca counties. Complete first-quarter financials must be filed with the Federal Election Commission by Thursday, and Hanna’s campaign said specific figures would be available then. Arcuri spokesman Mark Cornell...

    The New York State Independence Party Vice Chairman John Dote slammed Congressman Michael Arcuri and his campaign spokesperson, Jordan Karp's claims in a local newspaper of being "independent." "We feel strongly about an independent voice for the people. Mr. Arcuri has proven over the past two years that politics are more important to him than truly representing the voters of this district. The fact that he attaches his name to the word "independent," is truly misleading and frankly insulting to our party and the voters who he fooled once already. We state below some facts we considered, which ultimately led...

    LOS ANGELES - Joe Barbera, half of the Hanna-Barbera animation team that produced such beloved cartoon characters as Tom and Jerry, Yogi Bear and the Flintstones, died Monday, a Warner Bros. spokesman said. He was 95. Barbera died of natural causes at his home with his wife Sheila at his side, Warner Bros. spokesman Gary Miereanu said. With his longtime partner, Bill Hanna, Barbera first found success creating the highly successful Tom and Jerry cartoons.

    Alabama coast braces for erratic Tropical Storm Hanna 09/14/02 By KIM LANIER and REBECCA CATALANELLO Staff Reporters Tropical Storm Hanna teeter-tottered through the northern Gulf of Mexico on Friday, but appeared poised to make landfall near the Alabama-Mississippi line this morning, forecasters reported. Upgraded Friday morning from a tropical depression, Hanna spent much of the day hovering in the Gulf of Mexico with sustained winds near 50 mph -- just strong enough and close enough to worry Friday night football fans and scare Saturday's brides-to-be. A tropical storm warning was in effect from Grand Isle, La., to Apalachicola, Fla. A...
