Nancy Larraine Hoffmann

The Republicans, the Times Union reports today, have a likely choice for Lieutenant Governor: former liberal Republican State Senator Nancy Larraine Hoffmann, who lost her Syracuse seat in a complicated three-way race a couple of years ago.

She is also, as far as I know, the only statewide candidate to have worked (if briefly) as what Marc Humbert delicately describes as a “go-go dancer.” Which is fine, as long as she never tripped anyone in the playground.
