What happened when Collins bought Buffalo China?

First came Chris Collins' first ad. Then came Kathy Hochul's response. That was followed by Collins' response to the response.

The latest hubbub in the race for the New York's 27th Congressional centers around what happened when a group of investors that included Collins bought Buffalo China Co. in 2004 and turned it into Niagara Ceramics Corp.

You can read up on the issue yourself. We've uploaded two stories from the Buffalo News archives.

The stories appeared March 13, 2004, and March 30, 2004. The first -- "Buffalo China Co. is gone" -- describes the transaction as the plant was sold. The second -- "Making it in Buffalo" -- is a profile of Collins.
