This could be trouble:
Although Maffei no longer has a Democratic primary opponent, he might face a September challenge for the Working Families Party line.
Christina Rosetti, a writer and registered member of the Working Families Party from LaFayette, said Monday she submitted petitions with enough signatures to force a primary against Maffei for that party's line. The party committee designated Maffei as its preferred candidate last month.
Let's hope this isn't true. I never thought Christina Rosetti was going to be able to get the signatures to get into the Democratic Primary, turns out I was right, but I didn't realize she was registered in the WFP. I think a Democratic primary would be preferable to this, there's so few members of the WFP that it is a very volatile situation. This is a purely selfish and annoying move by a fringe candidate with no chance of winning. She needs to have the class that Paloma Capanna and Ken Howland showed in stepping aside.
