For the 31st state Senate district race against longtime incumbent Democrat Tom Colapietro, the GOP is pinning its hopes on Joe Geladino, a colorful character who ran unsuccessfully for a City Council seat last year.
And in the 79th House District, where Democratic state Rep. Frank Nicastro has held office for two years, the Republicans are backing Derek Jerome, who's been active in GOP politics for years.
State Rep. Ron Burns, the Republican incumbent in the 77th District, told me today that he still hasn't made up his mind about whether he'll seek a second term. He said he'll make a decision soon, though.
The Democrats are counting on Christopher Wright to pick up the 77th House seat this time around.
