Okay, I Lied

Louise Slaughter won't be on tonight.

Her scheduler called late yesterday and postponed. I'm still hoping to interview her before she heads back to Washington next week. I'll keep you posted.

In the meantime, we still have the interview with GOP Congressman James Walsh. During the 2006 election, he was opposed to setting a deadline for American troop withdrawal from Iraq. He said the U.S. still had an obligation to train Iraqi security forces.

Now, he says, the training has been done. He says the majority of American soldiers need to be back on U.S. soil by the end of 2008.

After he talks about that and several other issues, we'll talk about Governor Spitzer's 2008 State of the State address with Rochester Business Alliance President and CEO Sandy Parker.

Move Over Mr(s) President

Iowa. New Hampshire. Right now, Election 2008 seems to be all about The Presidency and voters in other places.

That's not true, however, if you live in the Rochester region. Putting the Presidential race aside for a minute, let's talk about Congress.

As they did in 2006, voters in this area of the country could play a key role in November because of our Congressional delegation: Randy Kuhl, Tom Reynolds, Louise Slaughter, and James Walsh.

If we take Rep. Slaughter out of the mix, we are left with three Republicans who are on the national Democrats' radar. Close races in 2006 mean the Democrats are considering pouring even more money into these districts in hopes of ousting the established incumbents.
