To the Editor:

Just read a link on NorthCountryNow about the young person who was paid by the NRCC to video Tedra Cobb at a gathering of youngsters. The link is: (https://www.northcountrypublicradio.org/news/story/36742/20180802/ny21-w...).

In a statement from Elise Stefanik’s office, referring to Tedra , containing the sentence. “while her campaign is in free fall, she is trying to blame everyone else when she should be blaming herself."

I would like to point out that nothing could be further from the truth. The Cobb campaign, driven by the tireless efforts of Tedra, an inspiring platform, and a huge army of bright and dedicated volunteers, is a long ways from being in free fall!

Furthermore, since the campaign is doing very well, Cobb isn't blaming anyone, she's thanking everyone for their enthusiastic support.

Calling the Cobb campaign failing, as the NRCC did in a link to this article, is very much like the current attacks calling the New York Times a failing publication when, in fact, their subscriptions are way up as is their stock.
