County Executive Race
Spano wins, but gets the livin' hell beat out of him in the process. Won't be a shoe-in and he'll have to spend his money. http://www.thejournalnews.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20050612/NEWS02/506120317/1026/NEWS10&template=printart
What does Astorino get out of this deal?
Mike Kaplowitz will help Spano out and do what he does best, get nasty. He might do better paying attention to his own district where the registration doesn't makeit easy for the legislator http://www.thejournalnews.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20050610/NEWS02/506100376/1026/NEWS10&template=printart
Now, Spano might of have an easier time if he were a tad bit more attentive to the grassroots of the party. Lots of the local Dems are swallowing hard and backing him, but don't expect to see a lot of sweat spilt on his behalf.
