Kinderhook’s Gibson may have Republican nomination

Leigh Hornbeck of Capitol Confidential reports:

“Asked why [Chris] Gibson [of Kinderhook] is making his announcement outside the 20th Congressional District, Gibson spokesman Rob Clark said it is because that is where the 10 county chair people are meeting and Gibson is having his event there so, ‘everyone is in one place.’ Retired Army colonel Chris Gibson has an event scheduled for 3 p.m. Wednesday at the Desmond [hotel in Albany], presumably to announce he has enough votes in the 10-county 20th Congressional District to claim the Republican nomination. Gibson and Patrick Ziegler, a Burnt Hills life insurance salesman with ties to the Conservative Party and the Tea Party movement, are vying for the chance to take on Congressman Scott Murphy, a Democrat from Glens Falls.”
