DeBenedetti Fails to Garner Democratic Party Backing

By Mark Wozniak

Buffalo, NY – The Erie County Democratic Party has endorsed community activist Maria Whyte for the sixth district County Legislature seat currently held by seven term incumbent Albert DeBenedetti.

The endorsement vote Wednesday night came after DeBenedetti held a press conference in which he urged an open primary, with no party endorsements.

DeBenedetti and Whyte are two of at least six Democratic hopefuls to represent the sixth district.
