Here And Now

Gov. Andrew Cuomo is in Onondaga and Suffolk Counties with no public schedule.

Not publicized: He’ll be attending a high dollar fund-raising lunch for his Cuomo 2014 committee in Syracuse at the Genesee Grande Hotel.

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand will be at the Jamestown Farmers Market this morning to push for passage of the Senate’s version of the farm bill, after the House approved a scaled-back version.

Spitzer personally delivered the signatures shortly before 11 p.m., guaranteeing him a prime spot on the local evening news. It could be weeks before it’s determined if his petitions withstand the inevitable challenges and he makes it onto the ballot.

John T. Sullivan Jr. an assistant attorney general under Spitzer and former co-chairman of the state Democratic Party, writes in a TU OpEd that the former AG deserves a second act.

The New York State Democratic Committee has raised more than $7 million for a campaign to promote Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s agenda and boost the party’s digital efforts at turning out the vote in the 2014 elections.

The proceedings of a new state commission designed to examine public corruption and campaign finance practices will not necessarily take place in public, its director said after the 25-member panel met behind closed doors and without public notice.

AG Eric Schniederman has subpoenaed the Nassau GOP and County Executive Edward Mangano’s re-election campaign for information about contributions from superstorm Sandy contractors.
