Paloma Capana Running for State Senate
So Paloma is not planning another run for Congress, instead she has shifted her focus onto State Senator Mike Nozzolio. It's going to be a tough race, but the Democrats taking over control of the State Senate is key to the upcoming round of redistricting. Also Nozzolio, who has been chronically unchallenged, represents Wayne County, which saved Walsh from being kicked out of office. Challenging Nozzolio will help bring more Democrats out in Wayne County and could spell trouble for Walsh.
Nozzolio was nice enough to kick off the campaign with Jim Walsh style arrogance:
The election “is a full 18 months away,” said Nozzolio, who seemed upset the interview strayed from the topic of the grant. “You ambushed me on this,” he added. “I am totally unprepared” to talk about it.
