Nov 06, 2002 — Democrat David Favro won the Clinton County's sheriff race Tuesday. Favro, a former Plattsburgh police detective, beat Republican incumbent John Lawliss. Lawliss had alienated many top GOP officials in the County. Some - including state Senator Ron Stafford - actually supported the Democrat.
In other races, however, it was a long night for Democrats. As Brian Mann reports, the Republican Party once again showed its clout in the Adirondacks and the Champlain Valley.
