Storie has talent to serve as county judge

As we look ahead to this important election on Nov. 3, one could say that the Republican ticket has never been stronger.

There is so much energy and excitement for the future ahead with all of the strong men and women filling the Republican lines. From our strong and resilient president down to our dedicated assemblymen, the Republican Party is good shape for the future.

I also want to acknowledge our shining star for our district, U.S. Rep. Elise Stefanik. Her dedication to delivering results for NY-21 has been seen not just here in the north country but on a national level as well. She takes the time to fight for us in D.C. but also listens to our concerns here in the district.

I’ve stood proudly with her at many events in our area, and I look forward to continuing to do so moving forward. Vote Red in November, and let’s keep this momentum going.

"Momentum"? Really? You mean the kind achieved by trying to roll a boulder uphill? Better check with your pal Sisyphus, Mr. Blanking Bush.

Ooh, angry!

This letter makes absolutely no case at all for voting for Stefanik. I think that says it all. The Post Star had 3 pages of letters today. There was one tiny pro-Elise letter praising her for defending Trump during impeachment. Every other letter on the congressional race was a thoughtful endorsement of Tedra Cobb. There was no name-calling or ad hom attacks or distortions. All of those things in this race have come from Elise Stefanik. I can see why the only thing “one could say” in support of her is that she’s been unswervingly loyal to Trump. We’ll see if that’s enough or if upstate NYers are seeing through the con.

momentum? we had 932 covid deaths yesterday.

Let's revisit the "momentum" after the election. I'm not necessarily against Elise's policies ... it's her failure to call out POTUS...party before values... she needs a good dose of John McCain politics... She'll probably complain about Trump after the election if he's gone.. duh..

Oh, probably you're right. Yeah, she'll do that.

One can say anything one wants but it doesn’t necessarily make sense. The leader of the Republican Party yesterday said it was a blessing from God that he got the coronavirus. Stefanik has blindly followed this nonsense for 4 years. I’d prefer to vote for the party that’s not a death cult.

Then do it. You will get the failed nation you deserve.

things were infinitely better under the obama administration and there's every reason to think that's a good guide to what things will look like under biden.

By the time Trump leaves office there will likely be close to a half million dead from the coronavirus. He still doesn’t take it seriously. His supporters still don’t take it seriously. Don Junior had an indoor rally yesterday in Florida. Cases are trending upward again and deaths will follow. Hospitalizations are going up. Trump acts like everyone who gets it is going to receive the same care he got. Yes, continue to follow him blindly, tho. And if you’re a Trump supporter in ICU on a ventilator just remember it’s a “blessing from God” and that you “owned the libs” by not taking any steps to keep from getting the virus. MAGA!

As opposed to a nation with an out of control disease that’s killing nearly a thousand people a day, economic hardship and terrorists plotting to kidnap or kill a governor because they are emboldened by the White nationalist in chief.

We got it when Putin put Trump in the White House, Comrade. And, of course, when we paid YOU for 25 years living off the military doing absolutely nothing.
