The NY Post editorial board makes their recommendations for Congressional races here

Gillibrand sheds chicken suit, agrees to ABC-TV debate.  The Gillibrand-Farley debate will air on WABC-TV and be held on Thursday, at 1:30 pm and be made available for their local political show, Up Close with Bill Ritter, and to statewide affiliates.  We will post the time on Thursday or before, if available.

Cuomo finally agrees to in-person TV debate with GOP challenger.     Gov. Andrew “chicken” Cuomo finally agreed to a TV debate that would be taped on Tuesday 1:30 p.m. in the studios of WCBS/Channel 2 and air Tuesday night at 7 p.m. on the local affiliate and on radio.  Personally, I am looking forward to how Governor Cuomo explains his “pay-to-play” schemes like this one;  of course, it has to asked and the likelihood of having it asked by the moderator is slim to none. 

If the NY Post hosted the debate, you could rest assured hard questions would be pursued.  Fortunately, the NY Post exposes all that they can through their newspaper --  and hopefully, NYC voters are reading it as unlike other NYC newspapers, the NY Post doesn’t hide behind a paywall (yet!)

The Post-Star endorses Marc Molinaro for Governor! 

Mayor de Blasio continues to act as if he is the King of New York City instead of being an elected official answerable to the citizens of New York City.  Mayor de Blasio still has visions of being king of the US and is lax about the daily needs of the City or worse pushes his agenda to the detriment of doing what is right, or appointing people to positions that do not seem to have the qualifications needed. 

Bill Hammond and Chris Pope write that single-payer would be death on NY’s best hospitals. 

If this caravan can overcome the combined efforts of Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras and the U.S., why can’t they overtake Honduras and make it more like America?  It isn’t about escaping conflict, generalized violence and targeted persecution – it is about free handouts from our government.  Trump says he’s reducing Central American aid over migrants; use the aid money to BUILD THE WALL!
