On Saturday, Brandon Gaylord, the Republican who is challenging Didi Barrett to represent the 106th District in the NYS Assembly, published the following post on Facebook.
Gaylord was one of the awardees in Mayor Kamal Johnson's "40 Under 40" competition. The post on Gaylord's campaign page seems meant to imply that he has Johnson's endorsement and support.
Yesterday, the Hudson City Democratic Committee responded on Facebook by reiterating its support for Barrett, the Democratic incumbent. The message from the Hudson Democrats was reposted by the Columbia County Democratic Committee.
It will be remembered that in September the Register-Star reported that Johnson was contemplating running for the Assembly two years from now, presumably challenging Barrett in a primary: "Hudson mayor considers Assembly run in '24."
