- big fat gadsden flag on the front page
- doesn't shut up about the Constitution, and promises to assess constitutionality before casting a vote

The recent history of the district:

It was Republican for a LOOOONG time.

Then in 2006, during a Dem sweep, Kirsten Gillibrand, who is a "blue dog" centrist, edged the corrupt DC insider rep by 6 points. In 2008, another dem year, she crushed a second tier challenger by 20 points before getting promoted to the Senate.

After her promotion, during a special election another Dem took the seat, but just BARELY. Scott Murphy (D) won by 0.5%, and this was while the Dems were still surging, and his opponent was a douchebag Albany lifer.

This district is a pickup opportunity and the current primary field is totally dead. I smell an opportunity in this Ziegler guy.
