  1. Nonpartisan

    Um, no, she isn’t the only woman running for NY19. Other people exist besides Democrats, ya know. Just because we don’t want Republicans doesn’t automatically mean we want Democrats. Diane Neal is also running as a, JUST AS VALID, Independent. And no I don’t need to hear about your fear-mongering nonsense about a split vote or the “Trumpian” crap.
