Here And Now
Eliot Spitzer stuck up for Carl Paladino on national TV, saying he’s “not as crazy as the media portrayed him to be,” but also predicted he “won’t win” in November.
One bad poll was enough to spur the Cuomo campaign to go negative against Paladino (on the airwaves, at least).
The campaign “would not say where or on which stations the advertisement would run, or how much was being spent to broadcast it, making it difficult to assess how aggressively Mr. Cuomo had decided to counterattack,” Nick Confessore writes.
Confessore deemed the ad “somewhat mild.”
Cuomo’s relationship with Mayor Bloomberg is a recent development.
Paladino’s campaign accused Cuomo of lying about voting for Bloomberg.

The Paladino campaign is cutting new ads and preparing general election mailings.
