NOTE: Predictions were made for the Exec race but Mike Berardi has since dropped out of the race for Executive.
Hugh Reynolds : Comptroller race very close, edge Auerbach
Comptroller's a closer call. If Hein romps - better than 2-1 - Donaldson goes down.No love lost there anymore. On the other hand, Demos may want to split their vote. Strategy is important. If Hein vote is held first, edge to Auerbach. A Donaldson vote first would negate some anti-Hein sentiment.
Blaber Agrees :
I agree with the political dean of the lower Hudson Valley, Auerbach will pull out the win this Monday, in a close but decisive vote. Auerbach seems to be winning over a lot of people and committees, even making inroads in the more Progressive committees--- where Dave was expected to do very well in. I never will count Donaldon out, I think it will be a close vote regardless but I think in the end Auerbach pulls out a big win at the convention.
NOTE : These are simply predictions and do not imply endorsements or favorites on the part of Hugh Reynolds or myself. For full disclosure I do happen to also be supporting Elliott Auerbach...Hugh Reynolds is not supporting any of the candidates.
