The quiet whispers are now being heard more loudly and more frequently at Republican county and town rallies in Saratoga County.
Jasper Nolan will retire if he cannot win the Treadwell race decisively. He has set a goal for the campaign and his organization.

This might explain why the RSVP's for the election night rally have grown from a handful to hundreds.
It is thought that potential replacements for county chairman will be working the room garnering support and testing the waters.
