None of the political analysts gives Dem challenger Martha Robertson much of a chance of defeating incumbent Tom Reed, although given all the money flowing to her from national Dems, I don’t count her out.

That said, she has run a pretty bizarre campaign, including the “fat shaming” tactic used on Reed, covered by local and national media, the most recent being Fox News:

Robertson recently received a, ahem, major endorsement.  Bowzer from 1970’s group Sha Na Na.

A local Fox News affiliate reports:

If you’re a fan of doo wop then you probably know all about the popular seventies band Sha Na Na.

Tonight the band’s infamous “Bowzer” was in Owego to show his support for Congressional Candidate Martha Robertson.

As the candidate for District 23, Robertson is fighting for the rights of seniors in the Southern Tier.

“Bowzer” spoke about the importance of senior benefits and of course played a little bit of music.

There’s no embed code for the video, but you can watch it here.

Here’s the crowd gathered for this major endorsement. Robertson and the same handful of people:

Um, I’m no political expert, but this seems embarrassing, even for Bowzer, who has had better days than that:
