With the race for Governor considered a foregone conclusion, lots of people I know are looking at minor party candidates for the state's highest office.
Whether its just to make a statement or to help in the formation of a new party dedicated to their favorite issues, the overwhelming favorite status of Andrew Cuomo is creating a gargantuan yawn among the political class.
One key Democrat tells me he/she is voting for Green Party candidate Howie Hawkins because they find Cuomo too conservative and they like Hawkins on the issues...Another Democratic operative tells me he/she is looking at APP candidate Kristin Davis....By looking, I mean considering a vote for her.
I cannot reveal names as June would have to convene a Panel of Inquisition and prepare to unleash the Dogs of Blind Obedience.
There are Republicans who plan to vote the Taxpayer Party line no matter who is on it. I know a GOP lawmaker who can't wait to meet Kristin when she comes here in September.
Average folks just don't feel the love for elephants and donkeys anymore.
