As far as the Republican pool of candidates for the supervisor post, Thomas Buchanan, chairman for Schenectady County Republican Committee, said one candidate is standing out " the No New Tax Party candidate Brian McGarry. Republicans have been critical in the past of Del Gallo, and Buchanan said Del Gallo hasn't contacted him.
"Brain McGarry has support within the committee, and there are other candidates that are interested," said Thomas Buchanan. "I believe he has substantial support at this time, and being the only candidate that is out there right now, he could very well be the endorsed candidate."
Buchanan said it would be "highly unusual and highly unlikely" for the Republicans to endorse Del Gallo.""
