The Buffalo News takes an un-expected stand. In an editorial Thursday they  endorsed Democrat John Plumb over incumbent congressman Tom Reed. The influential Western New York newspaper said "Voters in this district have a rare opportunity this November to elect a representative with a combination of good judgment, common sense, expertise and vigor. John Plumb, a captain in the Naval Reserve, is thoughtful and focused and would bring a welcome component of professionalism to the job of representing this Southern Tier district.
Plumb is running on the Democratic line against the incumbent, Republican Tom Reed, a likable and decent man, but whose credentials don’t approach Plumb’s level and who is trapped in the crossfire of Washington’s dysfunction. We endorse Plumb."
