Kearns launches campaign with vow to vote against Silver

Don't look now, but a race for the vacant 145th Assembly seat is under way.

On the day that Democrat Christopher J. Fahey began running a series of television ads attacking Michael P. Kearns (a Democrat running on the GOP line), his opponent said he will unveil his own campaign with a news conference Wednesday morning.

"I will announce I will not support Sheldon Silver for speaker, and challenge my opponent to do the same," Kearns said.

Assemblymen from South Buffalo have a long history of opposing the speaker from Manhattan, dating to Brian Higgins, who joined a coup against him, and Mark J.F. Schroeder, who also voted against him.

Kearns plans a Wednesday morning press conference to detail his plans.
