Members of Assembly line up behind Doheny

A week before the GOP primary, Republican lawmakers from the state Assembly have endorsed Matt Doheny over Kellie Greene to take on Rep. Bill Owens, D-Plattsburgh, in November.

In addition to Minority Leader Brian Kolb, the following members of the Assembly wrote a letter in support of Mr. Doheny, according to the Doheny campaign:

Steven McLaughlin, 108th Assembly District

James Tedisco, 110th Assembly District

Tony Jordan, 112th Assembly District

Janet Duprey, 114th Assembly District

Marc Butler, 117th Assembly District

Ken Blankenbush, 122nd Assembly District

William Barclay, 124th Assembly District

Dan Stec, the Republican, Conservative and Independence candidate for the new 113th Assembly District

Given the bevy of endorsements Mr. Doheny has received in favor of Ms. Greene — the state senators who represent the 21st Congressional District, every GOP leader and GOP committee that endorses in the north country, and several high-profile House Republicans like Paul Ryan and Jeb Hensarling who endorsed with their wallets — this comes as very little surprise.

One notable exception to this list is Assemblywoman Teresa Sayward. She's the only Republican assemblywoman not to endorse Mr. Doheny. She supports Mr. Owens for re-election, and I'm hearing that she'll soon start to actively campaign for him.

Mr. Doheny said today that it matters little, considering that she won't be in office next year and he won't have to work with her (Ms. Sayward is retiring, and Mr. Stec is running for her seat).

Democratic Assemblywoman Addie Russell, of course, did not endorse Mr. Doheny.
