Reporter's roundtable: Election 2012

We are coming down to the wire of the 2012 election. In the Nation, New York State, and the North Country, much could change between this morning and Wednesday morning.

The race for Congress in the North Country is an apparent dead heat between Democratic incumbent Bill Owens and Republican challenger Matt Doheny. That race is fueled by millions of dollars in donations from outside the district, much of it from undisclosed donors.

St. Lawrence County voters face a dramatically redrawn set of electoral districts that divide the county into four Assembly districts and three state Senate districts. And incumbent Assemblywoman Janet Duprey faces a Conservative surge in the 115th district.

Martha Foley talks with Brian Mann and David Sommerstein about the races, and how tomorrow's vote could shape the region's political landscape.  Go to full article

NY21: What's Matt Doheny's business background?

The 21st District congressional race is shaping up to be the most negative and expensive political fights in North Country history.

The campaigns of Democrat Bill Owens and Republican Matt Doheny have spent more than a million dollars apiece, slamming each other with attack ads.

Americans for Tax Reform, a "Super PAC" using money from anonymous donors, has also pumped more than $800 thousand into TV spots blasting Owens.

One of the biggest messaging battles is the effort by both candidates to brand themselves as common sense businessmen, with the kind of skill and experience that will help revive the region's long-suffering economy.
