No Country For Young Men

Of the three people who have thrown their hats in the ring for Carol Owens' assembly seat, the two GOP candidates are retirees (Mike Hatch, 60, and Cecil Streeter, 58), while the sole Democrat (Tim Blake) is still a younger man at 34.

What does that mean? I'm not quite sure yet. The 53rd is an older district than the 54th demographically and Owens was first elected to her office way back in 1992 at the age of 61, so there is a chance Blake could face a challenge trying to convince voters he's not just some kid who wants to go down to Madison and play government.
