Aubertine Staffer Responds to Article on

Media Release

WATERTOWN, N.Y., July 15, 2009
  —  Statement from Drew Mangione, communications director for State Senator Darrel J. Aubertine in response to article posted on Wednesday morning on

“Senator Aubertine has never wavered in his support of reforms within the Senate and welcomes changes that would free all senators from partisan gridlock. He had the guts to stand up to both sides of the aisle and try to fix the mess that Senate Republican power brokers created. The Senator is nearing, but has not yet made, a decision to run. If he were to run, the real shock would be if the NRCC didn’t try to mislead the public about his record. 

“The Republican power structure has an amazing ability to look in the mirror and blame others for their own mistakes, even when they’re clearly out of touch with their own registered voters, many of whom strongly support Senator Aubertine.

“The state Senate Republican hierarchy got all cozy with Tom Golisano and his money, and then started the stalemate, claiming they object to the very rules which they in fact established over four decades in control. The NRCC lost in 2008 and eroded much of their support because failed Bush Administration policies severely damaged our economy, so they blame the 7-month-old Obama Administration. 

“There’s a pattern here. The real surprise would be if the Republican cabal ran an honest campaign. They might actually win back some of the voters they have alienated, if they finally recognized how intelligent the electorate actually is.”
