In Our Opinion: Two hot races shaping up for fall

(Continued)

Hanna has since sought to stiffen his credentials somewhat with the GOP base, but has never been one to blindly toe the party line. 

Now Assemblywoman Claudia Tenney, R-New Hartford, is attacking Hanna from his right flank in a bid for his seat in the House of Representatives. 

“He has been taking populist positions as opposed to taking the positions he said he would,” Tenney told The Daily Star. 

We doubt Hanna would quarrel too much with this characterization. And Tenney, who is sharp, intelligent and well-spoken, is herself no cookie-cutter Republican. And two other Republicans may yet jump in — both decidedly more conservative than the iconoclastic Hanna. 

It is unlikely that Hanna will join in a race to the right, so we are interested to see how this one plays out.
