Rival asks court to block Bachman from ballot


“Mr. Nicols and I split on a lot of things,” Ross said. “I followed the law.”

Abbate said while he is optimistic that Bachman will retain a ballot berth, he is considering urging Crowell — whose name will appear on the ballot — to mount a candidacy if Bachman gets knocked off.

“If he does that, then he is flip-flopping, like the Democrats do,” Ross said of Abbate.

Abbate shot back that Keator’s backers are “taking the low road” in what he called an effort by Republicans to deprive county voters of an opportunity to choose Bachman as the person in charge of the county treasury.

The case has been assigned to Tompkins County state Supreme Court Judge Robert C. Mulvey, officials said.
