How redistricting changed 2011 primary

Buffalo, NY – There was one entire body of government missing from the primary ballots Tuesday.

The bungled re-districting of the Erie County legislature left no time for challengers to circulate petitions.

To learn more, WBFO's Joyce Kryszak talked with Bob Davis, the former Erie County Republican party chair, who is now a political analyst.
