Green: Eliot Neutral in AG Race

Mark Green says he’s “been told” that the much anticipated Eliot Spitzer endorsement in the race for Attorney General isn’t going to happen.

Here’s what he said in a phone interview this afternoon:

“I’ve been told that Eliot will stay neutral in the ’06 AG primary, just as Mario did at the head of the ticket in 1986. Mario Cuomo stayed neutral in the U.S. Senate primary between John Dyson and me.

“I’m confident that he will stay neutral and run with whoever wins September 12 based on the precedent of Mario Cuomo himself in 1986.”
