Many observers believed David Bellavia would win the 27th Congressional seat, if he chose to run. On Sunday, the war hero announced he will not enter the race, opening the door for other interested parties. Buffalo News political reporter Bob McCarthy believes Erie County Comptroller Stefan Mychajliw will soon enter the race. Batavia Assemblyman Steve Hawley could also join a heavy Republican field that also includes state senators Rob Ortt and Chris Jacobs, and attorney Beth Parlato.
