I know the repudiation of the WFP by Senator Aubertine is not the kind of story the MSM finds interesting, but I guess that's why there are political blogs.
As you can see by the poll Mr. Aubertine's decision is seen as the right move by a large majority of readers. The folks also think other NNY Dems should spurn this line with its hint of scandal and radical views.
Everybody likes families and most people admire people who work, but the Working Families Party ties a candidate to policies that are bankrupting NY.
Yesterday I heard someone say there is a view that the Indy Party is increasingly becoming the "me too" party for Democrats now that the GOP Senate majority is likely a thing of the past.
I don't know if that's true, but I do think from what I hear, any smart Republican candidate would use a WFP endorsement as a club against a Democrat. Aubertine could see it coming and took the chance of going it alone on the "A" line.
It is doubtful others will follow his lead. The one to watch on this is Brian McGrath because that line could be a curse in that neck of the woods. It would be so easy to tie him to radical left views which he says he doesn't believe in.
This will be a first test of where he stands,although he may look at it as just another line on the ballot.
