The Mike Sax for NY Congressional District 2 Run May be About to Take Off
I put the qualifier in. Never count my chickens before… But this could be a really exciting development in my challenge to Peter King and ending his 25 years of GOP misrule off the gournd.
Seems like we’re getting closer. This weekend I got my first moment on actual tv.
Remember what Nixon said-For Americans nothing is real until it’s on tv.
Finally I’m on actual tv. It’s a very short clip-I’m the third and final one interviewed just after 1 minute.
As I noted in my poll out a few months ago, I think I legitimately got a shot to beat Peter King if I can get some publicity. Norman Mailer’s advertisements for myself.
The tv spot was nice but they left out my being a prospective candidate to oppose King. So it was a perfect spot except that. Had they mentioned it that would have been a home run as far as the event was concerned.
My first poll was interesting-many of my readers know about that one by now.
The trouble is is that all Survey USA did was say “Here’s your poll, now good luck.’
What they didn’t do was help me with the actual networking I’d need. What’s the use of a poll that nobody with much publicity is willing to look at it?
I mean it was good to see anyway, as it did show some real vulnerabilities for Peter King.
Now, however, I’ve hooked up with a new pollster-Gravis Marketing-and they are willing to conduct a poll for me that is actually about 40% less in cost and does a real press release with it.
Per the guy at Gravis-‘I have a media list of thousands and Nate Silver is on the list.’
Now this can actually put us on the map.
From the best I can tell in speaking with the local NY 2 Democrats, no one has given much thought about who to run against King. I’ve heard that Duane Gregory-who ran in 2016-wants another go.
I have reached out to Mr. Gregory and he has not confirmed this either way. My best guess is that he’s fence sitting and brooding. ‘Should I, or shouldn’t I?’
Gregory is a very nice guy but he did lose by 23 points last time. I’m just saying.
Anyway, I figure as no one seems to have any plans or any idea what they want to do going forward, I figure I may as well quit trying to ask anyone for permission and force the issue a little bit. If my candidacy becomes discussed by Nate Silver or in Newsday or News 12, it takes on a momentum and reality all its own.
Better than even telling people ‘Im running’ is they see me in the act of-running. I will keep you updated my friends.
This is about a Dem Congerss 2019 that can actually impeach Donald Trump. Many of you on Twitter wish me all the best. Appreciate it. Remember that helps a lot-so does a donation if you can afford it.
You don’t need to be in NY 2-I’ve donated a few hundred to Jon Ossoff. In this day and age we need a Dem House not just for the Dem in our district to win.
P.S. As we saw in my poll out last week, the long awaited poll results are in, and right now I’m just 11 points down vs. Peter King (GOP-NY-District 2). And the voters don’t even know who I am yet.
There is nothing more important in getting answers to Trump-Russia collusion than a Democratic House in 2019. Please donate to help me in my part of the effort to fight for a Dem House.
Thank you. We must have a Dem House. And so, we will.
