Dems Tight-Lipped on Aubertine Run as Deadline Bears Down

ALBANY—Democrats insist they’re not in a rush to pick a candidate for a special Congressional election, and are treating the potential Congresional run of State Senator Darrel Aubertine like a state secret.
“We’re talking about days rather than … We’re not following the Republican program,” said Sean Hennessey, the Jefferson County Democratic chairman, who has served as a point person in the media for the 11 counties comprising the district. “We’re doing our own thing, we’re doing it very deliberately and I think it’s very beneficial to the process.”
He said that candidates still have until 5 p.m. this evening to submit materials.
