After Republican Tom Reed made a stink about it this morning, a spokeswoman for Gov. David Paterson issued this statement about a special election to replace Eric Massa in Congress:

“We have some serious concerns about the financial impact that a special election could have on the county level, especially because those counties are facing the same fiscal crisis that the state is facing,” said Maggie McKeon, a spokeswoman for the governor. “Furthermore, the Governor has no interest in disenfranchising military voters who are overseas, and who may not be given adequate time to vote given the short time frame of a special election calendar. This is some of what is being considered, but no final decision has been made yet.”


Daniel advises me there will no vote at this time….read on….

NY Gov. David Paterson (D) will not call a special election to fill the vacancy created by Rep. Eric Massa‘s (D) resignation earlier this month, according to news reports.

That’s a blow to the GOP, which saw the Corning-based district as its best chance to win a special election before the Nov. midterms.
