Hikind endorses Turner.

This video of course shows why.

"If only we were to treat each other the way the Torah talks about it."

I agree, it would be nice if children were publicly executed for talking back to their parents.

Turner will win, but I think it will be closer than that.

redistricting could easily mean that this one will simply be removed

One bit of trivia: if Turner wins, he'll be one of the oldest freshmen in the history of the House of Representatives. This guy seems to have been the oldest freshman ever, but Turner, at 70 years old, would probably be second after him.

I was phonebanking for Weprin for two hours today. We definitely aren't winning this election.

Oh, God, I didn't realize it was this bad:

Quote
"I'm not worried," said Weprin. "We're going to have about 1,000 people in the street. We've had overwhelming support from every labor union. We're going to have everybody out on Tuesday, and that's going to make the difference…. The only poll that counts is the poll on Election Day.

When someone has to trot out that ol' line ... man

So I take it the only special election where the result isn't all but over now is the OR-1 one right?

Weprin might still have a better chance than the GOP in Oregon

He's an interesting fellow, I'll be listening to him interviewing Turner at at 11pm on his radio show tonight

Not everyone. But about half. Half of registered Democrats.

I think he is a survivor of the concentration camps in Germany.  Maybe I have that mixed up, but he is really hard wired.

He was born in 1950, so that seems... unlikely.  Tongue

Well back to the drawing board then. I should look up his bio. Isn't he a Dem assemblyman who votes often with the GOP?

Yes, he has endorsed Republicans in the past including Pataki and W.  He is very socially conservative, perhaps even to the right of Diaz regarding gays.  His parents were Holocaust survivors IIRC, so that might be what you were thinking of.
