The mailings were sponsored by the state Republican Party, whose executive director, Thomas J. Basile, cited Davis’ three runs for the seat as a Democrat. “It’s obvious that Democrat Jack Davis doesn’t share our Republican values,” he said. “Voters deserve to know the truth about his dishonest attempt to distort his record. Jane Corwin is the only real Republican in this race.”
Corwin’s allies in the tea party movement were also firing away. “We at TEA New York do not support Davis. We all voted to endorse Jane Corwin, yet Davis runs on a tea party line,” complained Rus Thompson, a Grand Island resident and local pioneer of the tea party movement.
