Welcome To NYPols - Who We Are

With a mid-term congressional election, and a U.S. Senate seat and several state-wide offices up for grabs, the New York political scene promises much drama in the months ahead.

The state's most popular - and controversial- politician, Sen. Hillary Clinton, will be running to maintain a seat that most believe she will be keeping warm for just a short time before starting a bid for the presidency.

The mid-term congressional elections will take place as the anti-war movement grows and with voters in a restless, "throw-the-bums-out" mood.

In statewide races, Westchester County District Attorney Jeanine Pirro has switched from a bid to unseat Clinton to an attorney general race that is chock full of potential Democratic opponents'

Meanwhile, the man who currently holds that post, Eliot Spitzer, has a head of steam as the likely Democratic candidate for the governor's seat being vacated by another New Yorker who would be president, George Pataki.

On this blog we hope to follow the major statewide races, focus on New York State politicians who are impacting the national political scene and chronicle political developments that directly affect Westchester and Rockland counties.

And we will be keeping an eye on the bloggers as well, and let you know who is in the know and who's just blowing smoke.

We hope you enjoy the blog! Let us know what you think.
