<b>Possible Arcuri challenger emerges</b>

Democrat Les Roberts of German in Chenango County said Friday he has been asked by leaders of Working Families Party to run for the 24th Congressional District seat now held by Democrat Michael Arcuri of Utica.

"They are apoplectic over his decision not to support the health care bill,'' said Roberts, a professor at Columbia University and one of four Democrats to seek the House seat in 2006.

Roberts said he is discussing a possible run with family and friends and will speak to Working Family leaders Monday.
