NY-26 Special Election today.

Jane Corwin is, of course, the Republican/Conservative running in this race – which is getting people nervous because of the latest Siena poll*.  To which I say: then make sure that you go out and vote.

And if you don’t want Democrats to win elections, then do something about it.  I mention this last bit because there are roughly sixteen million Left-pundits out there who are slavering at the mouth at the opportunity to turn this particular election into an informal referendum on the Right; they were denied this with the Prosser/Kloppenburg election, so they’re even more anxious than usual.  If Corwin loses tonight, expect relieved howling from the Democrats.  Which will be annoying, but that’s what happens when you lose races.

*As for the PPP poll… well.  As God is my witness, I’d still be shrugging if the numbers went the other way: PPP had a pretty good record last cycle… except for special elections, particularly in New York, and particularly for three-way races.  I think that Tom Jensen may be not mentioning that as loudly as he might, but can you blame him?
