It has been a funny thing, reading on the Leon Koziol for Congress blog, how much the writer there has been writing about the State Senate race and not the congressional race at all...
...until the word got out this morning that Leon Koziol intends to drop out of the race for Congress, run for State Senate instead, and endorse Michael Arcuri.
The real question is whether Michael Arcuri and the Oneida County Democrats will lend their support to the right wing Koziol in return for the withdrawal from the congressional race. Supporting an eccentric right wing Democrat for State Senate in order to further Michael Arcuri's political ambitions would not be a very graceful maneuver for the Oneida County Democratic Committee.
There's no word out on the blogosphere, and the last newspaper article on Google's news search that writes about Leon Koziol was on April 5.
So, we're still looking for official confirmation, but it looks like Koziol is out - if he was ever really in to begin with.
