Whose Seat Will It Be Anyway?
Well it appeared that after the congressional maps came out, that this area was all set to have Buffalo Congressman Republican Chris Jacobs run for the new 23rd congressional district. But there’s been a major development: State Republican Chairman Nick Langworthy has turned against Jacobs. That’s because Jacobs supports a ban on AR-15’s and Jacobs wants no guns for anyone till they’re 21 years old. Among the list of interested Republicans who might run against Chris Jacobs in a primary is former State Senator Cathy Young. Young was a powerful member of the state senate and there, was in charge of the state senate’s finance committee. Young was also in charge of running Republican state senate campaigns. Cathy Young some weeks ago had bowed out of the race for congress, but according to the Olean Times Herald, Young is now interested in possibly running in a primary against Jacobs. The former Olean/Jamestown based state senator has more name recognition than the other candidates who have said they want to run against Congressman Jacobs.
