    Guest post by Laurence Verga After the absolute debacle that was NY-23, you would think the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) would learn from its mistakes and stop supporting liberal candidates, especially in primaries.

    General Assembly members should change this. Yesterday’s election between Jeff McWaters and Rosemary Wilson included tons of advertising and spending.
