Final decisions made by the Board of Elections commissioners on challenged congressional petitions...that effect Oswego County

Some developments of note: Dan Lamb, a top aide to retiring Democratic Rep. Maurice Hinchey who is challenging Republican Rep. Richard Hanna, has lost the Working Families Party line because he failed to faile an acceptance of the labor-backed party’s endorsement. That strikes me as a seriously amateurish error.

According to a reader, no Democrat has won the Binghamton or Utica congressional seats without WFP line in this century.

Hanna has troubles of his own, however. He submitted signatures to qualify for the Conservative line, but didn’t get the party’s nod (in the form of a Wilson Pakula authorization, which is required for all non-enrolled members), and so won’t be running on Row C in November.
