The Democrats hold their County Committee meeting today at 4:00PM. Up until a few days ago, it looked like Wade had it in the bag.
According to more than a few sources, Mahoney is coming back. More than one member of the committee has stated that the Premo debacle has soured Wade's candidacy.
Any rumors? Any over-under? Any bets? The window closes at 3:55PM.
Having no experience in these things, people tell us that the vote will go by municipality. That is, in alphabetical order. If the towns come in heavy for Wade it will be interesting to see what Troy does. Or, maybe the proxies will decide the whole thing before a vote goes off.
Reports indicate it's getting ugly, with threats of reprisals, nasty literature and people not on the committee, like Brian Premo, sending out literature in support of Wade. It's also been rumored that at least one Wade supporter is telling people that various elected officials are supporting Wade when, in fact, they are not.
On the flip-side, rumor has it that anyone supporting Wade will not be considered for any juicy, patronage jobs in the Spitzer government.
All rumors, of course.
Intra-party street brawls. Gotta love 'em.
