What’s the best way to ensure that you win the Buffalo mayoral primary? Why, by promising an entire voting bloc brand new flat screen TVs! Byron W. Brown just won the Democratic primary (he’s unopposed in November, so this victory means he just won the mayorship), and you can see him here (around the 50 second mark) promising to help seniors out by installing a new TV.

Why is this on CrunchGear? Because 1) it’s a fun, light-hearted story and 2) who doesn’t want a new TV every now and then?

No word on what brand or size Mayor Brown promised, nor if he actually plans to deliver said TV to the senior center. Here’s hoping.
