Show Some Backbone

Show Some Backbone.. That is what Hochul needs to do for her judicial appointee. The nomination of Hector LaSalle to be Chief Judge of the Court of Appeals is running into resistance. Far left Democrats have announced their opposition. There are 12 Democratic Senators who have come out against him. To salvage his confirmation Hochul may have to reach out to Republicans. They may offer needed support as Judge LaSalle is a centrist eminently preferable to an avowed liberal. No less than Hochul’s ability to govern for the next 4 years is at stake. If her man loses then she will be little more than a puppet controlled by the far left flank of her party. Show Some Backbone. The Governor’s political survival is on the line !!
