Powers of Staten Island

Francis H. Powers, Republican candidate for Congress in Staten Island, died on Sunday morning. His son, Francis M. Powers, has been running in the same race as the Libertarian candidate (and attended the recent Bob Barr debate). How that electoral contest will pan out, I would not venture to guess.

UPDATE: I had missed the news that Susan Overeem, who was also at the Lolita Bar debate, edged out Francis M. Powers for the Libertarian nomination.
