Mayor Byron Brown A Possible Choice To Replace Hillary in The Senate?

by on November 16, 2008

There is a lot of speculation about who Governor Paterson would appoint to replace Hillary in the U.S. Senate if she ends up as secretary of state. The one getting the most buzz seems to Brian Higgins (D-27), but, there is another Western New York politician whose name has been tossed out there.

Here is an opportunity for the governor to make Western New York really important,” said Hank Sheinkopf, a Democratic political consultant from Manhattan. “He needs to get someone of high quality and substance from Western New York. It’s the fair and right thing to do.”

While Clinton refused to address the speculation Friday during an appearance in suburban Albany, the game of political dominoes is already under way. Some news outlets are mentioning Mayor Byron W. Brown as a potential candidate, and the mayor said Friday he would consider an appointment but is “focused” on his current job.

Byron Brown? Is that a joke? I have yet to meet anyone who thinks he’s been a good mayor for Buffalo, why would Governor Paterson pick someone as incompetent and corrupt as Mayor Byron Brown?

For what it is worth, Buffalo Pundit is on board the Brian Higgins train. And Robert Harding of the Albany Project thinks the “change we need” is another damn Kennedy.
