Although some Democratic Party insiders from other parts of the country want you to believe that Democrats in the 24th District have already made their minds up about who to vote for in the primary six months from now, the truth is that most Democratic voters in this district don't even know who the Democratic candidates are.
So, instead of trying to rush and push Democrats here to annoint one candidate the winner without a single vote being cast, I'll keep on working to inform the Democratic voters, so that they can make their own decision.
In that spirit, I'm pleased to see that the Bruce Tytler for Congress campaign has its web site up, just in time to get some attention in the wake of the announcement by Congressman Sherwood Boehlert that he will be retiring.
Let me reiterate, for those readers who are not from New York's 24th congressional district, that we have three Democratic candidates running in the Democratic primary here. They are, in the order of their entry into the race:
- Les Roberts
- Bruce Tytler
- Michael Arcuri
