Corwin Wins GOP Nod In NY 26 Special

February 21, 2011
"As the 2nd most conservative member of the New York State Assembly in rankings by the New York State Conservative Party and the #1 Legislator in scoring by Unshackle Upstate, a New York reform organization, I know we need to slash federal spending, balance the budget, end the bailouts, take leftover money from the Obama stimulus package to pay down the deficit and support repealing Obamacare," said Corwin. But there is evidence some on the right may not be as quick to embrace Corwin. Local Tea Party groups were critical of the GOP chairs' swift moves to choose a nominee, preferring Iraq war veteran and author David Bellavia, who also lost to Lee in 2008 for the Republican nomination. Another past point that could prove problematic in a special election--in a 2008 Project Vote Smart survey, Corwin indicated support for the statement that "Abortions should be legal only within the first trimester of pregnancy." While the Western New York district leans Republican, Democrats aren't staying on the sidelines, and a Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee staffer visited the district last week to meet with county chairs and potential candidates. Local Democrats haven't yet set out a timetable to select their nominee. Once Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-N.Y.) officially recognizes the vacancy, a special election must be held within 30 and 45 days.
