Remember back in the end of last year and the early days of this year when we were looking at the possibility of Legislator Dave Mejias running against King?
A Challenge to the King
King Opponent Emerging
That ended rather abruptly as Dave Denenberg picked up the torch and eventually put it back down.
In the past week we've heard rumblings of a "Draft Suozzi" campaign which we also brought up here.
Word is that Suozzi has no plans whatsoever to leave the New York governors race and is not entertaining the idea.
Is that a bad thing? Sure, Suozzi would be a formidable opponent of King.
Does that mean a "Draft" campaign is over? No.
Which brings us back to Dave Mejias.
The long and short of it is that each of the almost-candidates Bishop, Mejias and Denenberg would have made great candidates against King. Beating Peter King was and still is real.
Yes, it looks sloppy to be still looking for a candidate this late in the year but it's better than rushing to line up behind a candidate who won't be the right person.
And again back to Dave Mejias.
Here is a legislator who has a proven track record.
The battle is to get the national Democratic party to see that King will be beat and get Dave Mejias back in the race as soon as possible.
