Capitol Pressroom

Nov. 30, 2016: Sen. John DeFrancisco, Asw. Barbara Lifton, Rachel Barnhart, Bruce Gyory

Sen. John DeFrancisco (R – Syracuse) explained why he is a staunch advocate of greater oversight for state economic development spending.

Asw. Barbara Lifton (D – Ithaca) has written to Attorney General Loretta Lynch requesting an audit of the national election results. The Assemblywoman joined Susan to explain why accountability in elections is so vital.

We met Rachel Barnhart, who left her television journalism job in Rochester to run in the Democratic Assembly primary against incumbent Harry Bronson. What followed was a cold lesson in bare-knuckle, small ball politics, and raw sexism; much of which Barnhart details in her new book, Broad, Casted: Gender, Media, Politics, and taking on the Establishment.

Bruce Gyory, a senior advisor at Manatt, Phelps and Phillips, analyzed key data so far overlooked in exit polling.
