Herkimer County tough terrain for Democrats

By WKTV News

(WKTV) - In Herkimer County, where Republican voters outnumber Democrat voters roughly 19,000 to 11,000k it would seem Democrats could never win.

But Richard Souza, the Herkimer County Democratic Chairman says important issues transcend party politics.

"You have a message, and our message is basically economic development," Souza said. "Now that goes across party lines, I would think. Whether Republican, Democrat, independent, blank, you want a good paying job."

Souza is also a candidate. He's running for Herkimer County Legislature against 16th District Republican Incumbent Fred Shaw.
