Will Timothy Cochrane be making a political comeback anytime soon ? — Maybe, you might be surprised at the answer that you see HERE

Next to State Senator Martin Golden, Timothy Cochrane is the Brooklyn Republican affiliated with “Republicans for Change” most talked about by KCRP insiders

In the event that the suit against the Brooklyn GOP by a few individual Republican County Committee members fails, is there really any future for Tim Cochrane in Brooklyn Republican politics ?  Of course there is....


As the readers of this blog should know, Timothy Cochrane was put forward by State Senator Martin Golden as the Republicans for Change candidate for Republican County Chairman at the 2013 County Convention. Prior to that, Mr. Cochrane had distributed a letter on his own behalf in support of his candidacy for GOP Chairman (but the postage was done in the name of the RFC). The mere mention of that letter continues to ruffle feathers among many mainstream Republicans to this very day. It is a matter of official record that Golden’s and Cochrane’s GOP County leadership balloon crashed and burned soon after its launch at the post-primary convention; and a currently-pending litigation to set aside the results of the 2013 Kings County Convention shows little likelihood of success. Where does all of that leave Cochrane in the Brooklyn GOP ?

Some lined up behind Kings County Republican Chairman Craig Eaton would simply wish and hope Cochrane into political nonexistence; others are preparing for his likely re-emergence. Be it on Brooklyn GOP Radio webcasts, or before and/or after KCRP executive meetings, Timothy Cochrane’s name is the one uttered more than any other possible “Republican for Change” candidate in 2014, save for State Senator Martin Golden himself.

There are lots of possibilities for Cochrane in 2014, but a run for the assembly in the 46th AD makes the most sense, both for Cochrane and his patrons Marty Golden and Jerry Kassar  —  especially if a threatened primary against Golden comes to pass. If he ran in the 46th, Tim Cochrane would be following in the footsteps of Tom McCarthy, who in 2012 ran with strong Golden support and cruised to a mammoth victory over the current GOP State Committeewoman in the 46th AD.

A Golden-Cochrane ticket in the parts of the 46th AD common to both candidates would be very strong in 2014. Furthermore, following such a run in 2014,  Tim Cochrane would be in an excellent position to take our the current GOP State Committeeman Marcus A. Nussbaum in a 2015 GOP primary; and that would be a major take-away for the RFC. Many cracks in the Eaton-Ferrarro-Potter alliance in the 46th AD have appeared during the last few weeks; and the RFC Golden-Cochrane team need to exploit those fissures with the maximum and continuous pressure of Timothy Cochrane as the team’s local leader in the 46th AD, especially in the Bay Ridge and Dyker EDs.

If the Eaton crowd and its allies continue to threaten State Senator Golden with internal party fights in 2014, Timothy Cochrane’s future in the GOP would seem to be guaranteed.

Golden actually goes out and campaigns on the street.

Does any other Republican do that?

A Republican primary is an inexpensive campaign. A small universe of Rep prime voyers. Mail & robocalls can get a message out.

Russell Gallo and his Brooklyn YRs do

Young Gangemi proved that no Senator is unbeatable. Marty represents everything Albany stands for. He can be taken down.

Gayle, what have you been drinking?

Cockrane is an empty suit who never had, never will, and does not have any past or future in politics. Lets take a quick look at his resume:

College - NONE
Graduate School - NONE
Friends - NONE (except for GK, MG and Clo - wow, where did she disappear to?)
Correspondence Course - Maybe the same course Arnaldo took

Candidates he supported except for Golden and Quag - NONE (Oh, I forgot that his wife gave $$ to Vincent Gentile who crushed his nephew only weeks ago. Did you see Gentile's ads in all the local newspapers, how he won his BIGGEST victory ever against Big John Quaglione - it was a great ad...talk about crashing and burning - and dont forget Storobin, Testa-loser, and all other RFC people.

Employment History:

NYSE Floor Trader - Terminated
Xavieran HS Dir of Development - Developed Nothing - 1 year Contract not renewed
Empire Business Maintenance - Defunct
Windmall Hot Dog Franchise - Defunct
Worker at J. Streicher - Current position - Probably in charge of Hot Dogs

I even heard recently that people on the floor are not happy he is back. In fact one person wrote "Tim C is back on Wall Street - what an unlikable guy he is"

So, in sum, Tim Hot Dog Cochrane is a pint sized empty suit who has no future. You mention the 46th...but he lives in the 64th.....heard his house is for sale and maybe even sold - saw a flyer from Maquire Real Estate saying his house is in contract. Maybe he is buying or renting a small apartment in the 46th...what a fall from grace...a home on Harbor Lane to a small house or apartment in the 46th...look what happens when you stay with losers....you become one....

I'll take three dogs with mustard and crout....to go.....thx

In answer to your first question, lately I've been sipping a blended malt from three Speyside malts called "Monkey Shoulder" a very good product from John Grant that tastes very much like the Dalwhinnie from the same distiller.

Since your comment is as long a my post, I think you have some real issues with your friend, Mr. Cochrane. So, in the spirit of the season, why don't you go out and have a couple of toddies together and see if you can work it out in the flush of bonhomie.

Isn't Tim a very successful Bay Ridge businessman who lives in a beautiful home down the block from the GOP chairman? How can it be suggested he's a failure?

Tim's had some ... setbacks in his life. And not just politically.

And the blood is all over Old Man Marty Golden's hands...has anybody noticed recently the barrage of Facebook posts by the old geezer....it seems like all he does is go to tree lightings and old age homes. Maybe they are looking for places to work after he gets crushed in 2014. Andrew Gounardes is already doing his research on Marty. Remember at the debate last year where Andrew caught Marty in a lie about his voting and he turned bright red....Andrew will have lots of $$ and support this next year....on to victory for Andrew....

Gallo is too far to the right to win in a general election but in a primary that works out just fine. Use Grimm/Allegretti as a case study.

Gallo is a solid Second Amendment guy and a decorated combat veteran. With the NYPD just now sending out notices of a turn-in/confiscation of operable M-1 Garands and carbines (both venerable WWII - Korean War antiques that are almost never used in crimes) there will be a natural constituency for "Ole Sarge" against the pro-S.A.F.E. Act State Senator Golden. With a likely fundraising trip to DC in the late winter or spring, don't be surprised if Russ comes back with some NRA and other Gun Association and gun-owner PACs' dollars

"Very successful Bay Ridge businessman" ??? - I wouldn't go that far. Check out the link below.

He just didn't sell enough hot dogs - maybe he can move in with his best buddy Marty, or maybe into Gracie Mansion with his best friend Joe Lhota. Oh, wait…
