Blakeman VS Gillibrand, and others, more on the convention, and a no confidence chairman

June 7, 2010
BLAKEMAN vs GILLIBRAND   (This is another COX insider job, and another sore move, more later, and in the meantime, Go Malpass and DioGuardi, both fine men)
  
  
  
Joe DioGuardi, candidate for the U.S. Senate: “New Yorkers deserve to hear every voice, every idea, every candidate during the debate preceding the primary election. They deserve to understand every angle before deciding who they believe can beat Sen. Gillibrand this November and go on to proudly and properly represent New York in the U.S. Senate. In order to give Republican voters that opportunity, I have decided to petition onto the Republican primary ballot.” …
  

 


“He hoped that having received the Conservative endorsement it would force the hand of Republicans, but Joe DioGuardi
did not garner the 25 percent he needed to win a spot on the Republican primary ballot in September. His opponents David Malpass and Bruce Blakeman advanced to the primary. Another bump in the road  to the idea of Republicans and Conservatives forming a united slate in November. Blakeman became the officially designated candidate.
 
 
 
 
GOP COX MUST STEP DOWN OR FACE VOTE OF “NO CONFIDENCE”
  
 
  

“Rick’s trajectory has continued on an upward swing and the sky is the limit as far as where he can take this party,” said Republican Party Chairman Ed Cox.  “I have said all along, Rick is a tremendous candidate and will make a fantastic Governor.  The Republican Party is lucky to have Rick at the top of our ticket.”
  
Give me a break! Then why did Cox try & put a Democrat at the top of the GOP ticket, that’s rhetorical!

 

  
 
STATE GOP ENDORSES LAZIO
 
LEVY FAILS TO MAKE BALLOT
 
PALADINO MAY RESIGN THE  RACE?
 
NO PALADINO SAYS HE WILL PETITION
 
 
 
“Playing a recording of Rick Lazio and Andrew Cuomo palling around while discussing each other’s housing policy, bomb-throwing Republican Carl Paladino announced this morning he would petition his way onto the ballot for governor.” …
 
Paladino says he will petition; WE’LL SEE!
 
“Lazio may still face a primary challenge from Paladino, a wealthy Buffalo developer. He vowed before the convention to petition his way onto the ballot. The Paladino campaign is “making some tough decisions,” said Michael Caputo, his chief aide.

 
Paladino did have a chance to address the convention when he nominated himself. Paladino says he will petition to get on GOP primary ballot. He will NOT be able to use the Tea Party label if he starts a drive for another line. Paladino, as the songs says, must “know when to hold them & when to fold them”. Enough is enough!
 

POINT OF ORDER OR PERSONAL PRIVILEGE
 
Suspension of the rules!
 
 
 A vote of “no confidence” is non binding. However,  just thinking out loud, considering the Paladino forces do not have the stomach to engage Cox, that would leave Lazio.
 
Again, thinking out loud, there is former Erie County Chairman Bob Davis, a former State vice chairman, a Lazio stalwart; Lazio could put Bob Davis up as an interim Chair should there be a vote of no confidence, Cox capitulates to the will of the convention & resigns.
 

 

“The two most important things you can do as party chair are really very mechanical. You have to find good candidates, and you have to help them raise resources.”

Henry Wojtaszek, a former chair of the Niagara County GOP, who is also in line to replace Cox should he suffer & lose a floor fight of “no confidence”.
