Seward and Leib Face Off in Second Debate
Thursday, October 18, 2012
Republican State Senator Jim Seward and his Democratic Challenger Howard Leib of Dryden faced off last night in the second of five scheduled debates.
Seward and Leib are vying for New York's 51st Senate District Seat, which includes all of Cortland County as well as Tompkins County and now portions of Cayuga County.
Seward is seeking his 14th term, he has held the seat since 1988; this is Leib’s first run for office.
During yesterday’s debate Seward cast himself as the best candidate because he already knows the concerns of the district and how to fix them.
Leib argued that the problems in Albany require an outsider who is not mired in politics and special interests.
The next debate between Seward and Leib is scheduled for Oct. 25th.
