The Missing Candidates of 2008

In 2008, the Republican Party of New York failed to run candidates in 14.5% of State Senate races and 24.6% of State Assembly races. In 2010, this can not be the case. If the Republican Party of New York wants to be competitive, they can not merely allow the Democrats to control every seat or allow Democratic nominees to also capture the Republican line. They must have their own candidate in each and every race statewide and they must be competitive, they can not merely put up a sacrificial lamb. Drafting real candidates for each and every district is a goal of mine here at home and in New York. It must be done or else they will remain the minority party. Here is the breakdown -
Districts Without Republican Senate Candidates: Districts 10, 13, 14, 27, 30, 32, 33, 46, and 60

Districts Without Republican Assembly Candidates: Districts 6, 22, 24, 25, 27, 29, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 45, 58, 66, 79, 81, 84, 87, 89, 92, 94, 95, 98, 106, 111, 125, 126, 132, 133, 140, 141, and 150.
In 2010, this has to change.
