New York Primaries Voting Guide

Here is your mission. On September 14th you need to vote in the New York Primaries. If you are a registered Republican I have a few suggestions that might make your tip to the polls a little easier.
Governor:If you are looking for our next Governor you have two choices.
1.Carl Paladino
2.Rick Lazio
My suggestion is go for the guy with the balls to get the job done. Hint, it's Carl Paladino. Ohh sorry, I made that too easy.
US Senate New York
vs. Gillibrand
1.  Joseph DioGuardi
2.David Malpass
3.Bruce Blakeman
The Tea Party groups seem to favor David Malpass. He has a really good record and is a strong candidate. Give him your support.
US Senate New York
vs.Schumer
1.Gary Berntsen
2.Jay Townsend.
This one is a no-brainer, at least for me. Berntsen has the sack to get the job done, plus he's got CIA cred, how cool is that? Jay Townsend? He has a really, really, uncomfortably creepy smile.
Congress. Here are my choices for Congressional candidates. I am a Libertarian so I also listed Libertarian candidates in case you share my beliefs. Tough choice when your a Conservative Libertarian.
There may not be a primary in your district. Check with your local board of elections before you head to the polls. If there are no names in any district it means there is wither no primary, or no conservative running in that district.  
Remember. If you have someone you would like listed, perhaps a write in candidate, or any of the assembly seats up for grabs this year which I did not go in to detail about. Perhaps you have information about a local race you would like to spread the word about. Please leave a message from the information on the about page, or leave a comment on this article.

State Assembly
 I don't have the energy to make out a list, so I'll give you my pick for my district.
126th District Art Garrison. I know both Art and his Republican opponent Jason Stokes. In the interest of fairness I am set to interview Stokes in the next few days. I believe both men are trying to do the right thing, but at this time I feel that Art Garrison has shown he has the drive and the determination to get this job done.
 I may post a complete listing of Assembly and local election candidates after the primaries, but at this point, there are too many for me to deal with at the moment.
