There is a special election scheduled for February 26 in the 48th Senate to replace Jim Wright who has moved on.

For the first time I can recall we have two pro-gun candidates running for a Senate seat. The question therefore becomes who is better able to represent the interests of gun owners in the Senate. We believe Will Barclay is and are pleased to endorse him for this race. Towards that end we will be doing "orange card" mailings and running advertisements in the next two issues of NY Outdoor News encouraging people to turn out and vote.

A special note to Senator Liz Krueger: I got the e-mail Travis Proulx sent us about Sportsmen For Aubertine. I know he works for you because when I checked the domain it originated from I'm redirected to your personal website. Because your staffer is too stupid to understand what BCC is, I'm copying this message to all those people he sent it out to as well.
