First Pictures: Eliot Spitzer Vists Fort Edward, Endorses Kirsten Gillibrand
It was one of the biggest nights in recent memory in Fort Edward, NY when NYS Attorney General Eliot Spitzer visited the newly opened Washington County Democratic Headquarters to address area voters and endorse candidates Kirsten Gillibrand, running for Congress in the 20th CD, Tim Merrick, running in the 45th Senatorial District and Hudson Falls Mayor David Carter, running for Assembly in the 112th Assembly District.
This visit culminates a great season and is a real tribute to Washington County Democratic Chairwoman Sheila Comar, who was Petition Coordinator for Dean For America. Now in her second term as County Chair, Sheila has turned the Democratic Party around in Washington County, enlisted great candidates and opened the first Democratic election headquarters in Washington County.
All these great pictures by Richard Dudley!
