2. Gillibrand In Moreau

Rep. Gillibrand will also be holding an open public forum on Health Care Affordability, Sunday, October 21st, at 1:00pm at the Moreau Community Center, 144 Main Street, South Glens Falls.

3. Gore Leading In DFA Pulse Poll

Former Vice President Al Gore is leading in the DFA Pulse poll announced earlier this week.

This is a pretty amazing showing, considering he has garnered the most support without his name being on the ballot; all of his votes are write-ins, whereas all the other nine candidates not only have their names on the Pulse Poll ballot, but their pictures as well.

If you haven't voted, you should. If one candidate gets 66% of the vote, that candidate will get DFA's endorsement. Below that level, the winner can get state wide endorsements. Since tonight Gore seems to be gaining almost 1% per hour, and the poll lasts until November 5th, it seems possible he might get it. The other candidates are pretty much tracking in place without much movement vis-a-vis each other.

Gore has not officially declared, but he placed campaign type videos on his network, Current TV, earlier this week, and the effort to draft him continues. Four years ago Gore called the organizers of that seasons Draft Gore effort and asked them to stop. No calls have been made asking anyone to stop anything this year.

4. Rudy Rising?

Growing interesting in Gore may be due to the continuing rise of Rudy Giuliani on the Republican side of the Presidential contest, and people in NYC who know Rudy best, are starting to sweat. That makes for this must read from the New York Observer:

"Norman Siegel, who served as the director of the New York Civil Liberties Union during Mr. Giuliani’s tenure as mayor, said, “I’ve been saying to people in New York, especially the liberal community that I’m proud to be part of, that unless the truth is revealed about the real Rudy, he could win, and not just the Republican nomination, but the presidency as well. Most people in New York look at me, and they say ‘no way.’ They say it can’t happen. The political leadership in New York is underestimating him. They are really in political denial. I say to people, ‘You better wake up.’”

Thanks everyone!
