NY-26: Jon Powers Mum on Future of His Campaign

by on September 16, 2008

It has now been a week since Jon Powers lost the Democratic primary to Alice Kryzan, and we still have no official word about what he plans to do with campaign. As we know, he will be on the November ballot on the Working Families Party line, but he has not declared whether he plans to continue campaigning, or endorse Alice Kryzan.

I’ve repeatedly tried instant messaging and emailing Powers’ campaign manager, John Gerken, to no avail. I don’t know what this all means, but I’m inclined to believe that the longer Powers is silent on his plans, the more likely it is that he will eventually choose to keep his campaign going. Truthfully, I think the odds are against Powers continuing his campaign, as Alice Kryzan now has the backing of the Working Families Party and the DCCC. But, Powers is reportedly taking his defeat pretty hard… and that makes me think he’s not ready to give it up.
