Cuomo Gets Key Manhattan Endorsements

New York State Attorney General candidate Andrew Cuomo received key endorsements today from Manhattan.

The Democrat's campaign announced backing from Rep. Jerrold Nadler, who's Congressional district covers parts of Manhattan and Brooklyn.

Cuomo also announced the backing of Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer, State Senate Deputy Minority Leader Eric T. Schneiderman, who's district covers parts of Manhattan and the Bronx, and Assembly member Linda Rosenthal, whose district is on the Upper West Side Manhattan.

LIBERTARIANS PICK WELD

The New York State Libertarian Party today chose its candidates for this year's elections. The party is backing William Weld for governor. Jeff Russell was nominated for U.S. Senate. The Libertarians are not an official party in the sense that they have no automatic spot on the ballot, so they must petition to have their candidates listed. Weld, of course, is seeking the GOP line as well.
