Chris Collins beat David Bellavia, but do we need to get carried away with the public ass kissing on the front page of the Buffalo News?

 Via Chris Collins mouthpiece Bob McCarthy of the Buffalo News:

Chris Collins took a giant step toward a remarkable political comeback tonight with an overwhelming victory over David Bellavia in the Republican primary for the new 27th Congressional District.

There is nothing remarkable about it. He got 10k votes.

Within minutes of the victory cam this Statement from Campaign Manager Frank Thomas:

 “Chris Collins has made it a hallmark of his campaign to avoid taking positions on key issues.  But one thing is clear, Mr. Collins supports Paul Ryan’s budget; a plan that turns Medicare into a voucher program and makes seniors pay $6,400 more for their Medicare benefits to fund tax cuts for multi-millionaires.  He has even has said that it does not go far enough.

“It is time that Chris Collins comes clean with voters about his plans to take the Ryan’s budget further.  What more could he do on top of decimating Medicare and protecting the super rich?  We hope that now that he is the nominee he willing to answer questions on the issues that matter most to the people of the 27th district.”
