Chuck Schumer is getting his wish. Kirsten Gillibrand the anti-gun control, low-profile upstate congresswoman is going to replace Hillary Clinton in the Senate. Liberal downstate politicos are furious, Long Islander Carolyn McCarthey is so upset that she’s promised to challenge Gillibrand in the 2010 primary. McCarthey lost her husband in a shooting on the Long Island Railroad so gun control is a very important issue for her.
Wonder if Gillibrand will be joining Schumer for his regular Sunday afternoon press conferences?
