Don't go there Doc. You're 1000% wrong calling me a "closet Cuomo supporter"! Total bullshit insult to make simply because you take offense to me calling a spade a spade. I'm not misguided in the least and attended every gun rights rally in Albany held pre and post-SAFE. I voted for Astorino and I'll vote again for the guy who runs against Cuomo. And, that tyrant prick Cuomo will still win. When the iron was hot, NY gun owners stayed home in 2014 recording a record-low 33% voter turnout for Cuomo v Astorino. Pathetic.
Now you want to me to believe that Kolb can drive voter turnout and take him down? Please show me Brian's hard-hitting track record against Cuomo? McLaughlin ripped Cuomo a new one at every opportunity on the floor and in the press. McLaughlin posted the list of SAFE Act provisions that Cuomo wanted, against the wishes of Dems. He ripped him for the blatant abuse and waste of funds in StartUpNY. The point is his passion has always been on display whereas Kolb hasn't shown that fight, something any candidate would need to have a shot at winning.
I think Kolb is a high character guy, but even his own party is waiting on other candidates to step forward. Hardly a ringing endorsement. It's going to take a visible profile across the state, lots of money and relentless hard punching to beat this beast killing our State.
