Previously: 26th Senate District: As if there’s any difference? (February 26, 2014)
It appears that Senator Brian Nieves (r) has drawn a primary. At 4:03 p.m. yesterday Representative Dave Schatz (r), who was first elected in the 61st Legislative District in 2010 (and not yet subject to term limits), filed as a candidate in the 26th Senate District, challenging Senator Nieves (r) in the primary….
….As if there’s any substantive difference between the two?
