Rumors are floating through the various campaigns for the 11th district that the cancellation of Carl Andrews’ big event with Eliot Spitzer today signified something more than overcrowded schedules.

While it does seem odd that the event would be booked to take place in Manhattan on what was supposed to be the final day of the legislative session in Albany, it is also, theoretically, a convenient way for Spitzer to back away from Andrews — a notion that seems to make a lot of sense to Andrews’ opponents.

Here’s what a spokesperson for Yvette Clarke’s campaign had to say about it: “Obviously, we believe Spitzer endorsed the wrong candidate.”
