Evening News: Farm Plan, District Story

WENY has a story on Eric Massa's new farm plan [pdf], which was announced today.

In that story, Randy Kuhl's chief of staff says this:

“[Randy] is sitting on the House Ag Committee, he's not just a wannabe…Kuhl fought for New York farmers and against the Bush Administration's farm bill….Kuhl knows the issues better than anyone in this race, hands down.”

I'll point out the obvious: if Massa is elected and he wants to be on the Ag Committee, he'll be on the Ag Committee. The Democratic majority in the House will be very interested in retaining this seat, and Massa will have his pick of committees.

The Capitol newspaper has a nice 29th race profile story online.
