Seems like another NY loss for NOM

by Jeremy Hooper

Another one of the four Republicans NOM has targeted because of marriage equality seems on track to win his primary:

Saland declared unofficial winner of GOP primary [Poughkeepsie]

Mark Gristani also won. Jim Alesi dropped out for other reasons. So if the Saland victory holds, that would make Roy McDonald (whose own hand count is ongoing and who will likely remain in the race either way) the only one of the four primary races where NOM might be able to consider a legitimate "win."

Of course it doesn't matter what actually happens, since NOM will just go ahead and say whatever it wants anyway. Hell, they're claiming victory over Democrat Shirley Huntley, even though every New Yorker who knows even half a thing about politics knows that the highly inconvenient picture of her in handcuffs was the big reason she lost her race. So no, it doesn't even matter what the results turn out to be—NOM already has its narrative pre-planned.

But the beauty part? B.S. doesn't become palatable simply by force of will. This organization's years of crap is catching up to it, and the losses are getting harder to hide. And come November, it might not only be marriage equality activists who are tired of the nonsense. The GOP in the state might very well suffer more losses than it normally would simply because an out-of-state special interest group with no actually NY ties swept in to tell the local Republicans how to handle themselves. That in-fight could be very fun to watch!
