Here’s something I noticed while on Staten Island yesterday: front-page newspaper advertising. Above the fold! Where it slightly obscures the headline.
The stickers are for Vinny Ignizio and Jimmy Oddo, Republican city councilmen on Staten Island facing not entirely ignorable Democratic opposition today. Oddo’s mid-island district is more of a swing district (there are 10,000 more Democrats than Republicans, he says), while Ignizio’s is more solidly Republican.
