GOP waits on Collins replacement, fearing 'domino effect' on ballot

Republican county leaders heard from the candidates, one by one, and liked what they heard.

And the more the GOP county chairs thought about it, the more they decided it's not the right time to throw any of those nine candidates into the legal thicket created by Rep. Chris Collins' indictment and subsequent decision to suspend his re-election campaign.

That's the take Republican insiders offered Wednesday, a day after the eight county chairs in New York's 27th Congressional District met with the nine people who want to replace Collins on the ballot in November.

Republican leaders still don't know exactly how to get Collins' name off the ballot, but they do know that Democrats will meet whatever they do with a legal challenge.

1. Collins has to move, run for a different office, or cease breathing for Rs to get to remove him


As in move to another state.

2. One of the cities, Eden, said no to Collins running on the ballot there.

The Democrats are ready to sue to keep Collins on the ballot so it definitely looks like he will be staying.
