Kathy Hochul, Circa 2011

Here’s a little iphone video from Kathy Hochul’s 2011 special congressional election victory party.  Now named as the 2014 Democratic candidate for Lieutenant Governor, Hochul defeated Jane Corwin in a fierce race to fill the vacancy in the 26th Congressional District following Chris Lee’s abrupt selfie-inflicted resignation.  (Corwin was asked by Republican gubernatorial candidate Rob Astorino to run as the 2014 Republican Lieutenant Governor candidate.)  The election night party attendees included then-Erie County Democratic Chairman Len Lenihan and Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown.
