Did Liam McCabe, John Quaglione and the NYCCFB just turn the 43rd Council District Republican Primary into a BINARY CONTEST AMONG THE TWO FRONT RUNNERS ???

Did the Campaign Finance Board finding that candidates Liam McCabe and John Quaglione were entitled to >>>  an initial maximum payout from the City coffers <<<  turn the Republican Primary for City Council in the 43rd District into a "Two Man Race"  ---  AND  ---  IF NOT,  WHY NOT ???



Somebody very early on in this 2017 election cycle (almost two years ago) told me that the principal show of support for City Council candidates in 2017 in the 43rd District would be  ---  FINANCING ! ! !     That person was Bob Capano, and it was after a Holiday Party in 2015.....  He then presented a very convincing argument as to why he would be in a far better position to out-fund- raise people like  ---  let's just say,  "John Quaglione," for starters.

Quite apart from obvious questions like,  "What happened ???"  ---  let's address something like this:  "Why isn't that initial proposition still true ???"

GUYS, THIS ISN'T LUCRETIA'S FIRST RODEO.....


Even though Her base is more like a small bunch of hardcore supporters, her BIGGEST problem this time around is getting out any kind of message out that she is a candidate for anything other than Republican State Committee person --- at best, she might be able to manage a very small primary "campaign" for EVERYTHING that she needs to do.

... but Lucretia Regina-Potter does have a few things going for her that the others do not:
She is THE CANDIDATE of righteous "Republican" indignation; she is a woman, and the GOP doesn't have a lot of women candidates period; she has a long time "Republican" history, and she can argue all about the Conservative Party's attempt to dominate the Brooklyn Republicans through RINO Marty Golden; and last, while admittedly having run more times as a "Republican" for public office than any other candidate ever, she can still make her pitch that she is the one, true "outsider" in this GOP primary for the Council.

Capano's continued residence on Staten Island and general lack of community ties after being away for so many years is reflected in his lack of financing and lack of local support, Curtis Sliwa and Cats do not vote in the district. Additionally a Quaglione and McCabe are actually running grassroots campaigns.

Capano's only effect on this election is how he effects the outcome for Quaglione and McCabe.

Capano is irrelevant. .Quaglione will wipe the floor with Working Families Party candidate Liam (Will) McCabe in the Republican primary.

Why did Will McCabe change his name..inquiring minds will find out soon enough!

That is so much money that's gonna get laundered through Long's Liquors.

8:53 it's because his dad was named William, and he was a stinking drunk enabled by Mike Long's neverending liquor supply.

Quaglione raised a record breaking amount of money in 2013. Q also broke another record by losing by largest amount of votes.

Q is the record breaker !!

The name change to Liam has alittle something to do with a big arrest of Will in 2005..you shall see soon enough

Anonymous said...

Oedipal? Are you accusing Liam of being a motherfucker?

Anonymous said...

Are you?

And on the right-most foot, in these times when "Anything Goes," it is NOT IMPOSSIBLE that all of this is really Electral and not electoral at all.
Ah, look out for them Greeks, like Hank Ibsen, Auggie Strindberg and Big Gene O'Neill.

Oh yeah. Voters will be outraged Liam jostled his son. I say, smack your son and go to jail. Better yet. Yell at your son and do life.

After seeing that mailer voters may wonder why fat people from staten island are so stupid.

Liam didn't just hit his kid, he hit his kid because his kid's a weed dealer.

Oh and Liam also shook down his kid for a donation too.

Quaglione will win in a landslide and show McCabe and Obrien for the boys they are,
Obrien has been talking for YEARS about "getting" Golden, he has always failed, most recently with Eaton and now with Mccabe.

Golden has to be lucky everyday.

O'Brien only has to be lucky once.

Anonymous said...

State Senator Golden and his team look like they are going to the mattresses for Golden's guy John Quaglione. Since Golden and his crew are dealing with the narcoleptic and soporific Quagmeister, that might not be the best strateegery for the Goldenistas or for Quaglione.
