* I’m not sure if “Scott” is Rep. Drury and someone else wrote this tweet or if Scott is the name of the tour guide other than Rep. Drury, or what. But have at it…

Carry on.

  49. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Sep 27, 17 @ 4:23 pm:

  56. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Sep 27, 17 @ 5:47 pm:

    “When I dropped out of the governor’s race, I called all the campaigns … offered to endorse. Each one asked if I could endorse anyone but them. That’s how liked I am.”


  57. - Huh? - Wednesday, Sep 27, 17 @ 6:08 pm:
