Carl’s Big Day

So tomorrow is the day for Carl Andrews’ big press conference to display support from political heavyweights including his former boss Eliot Spitzer, Randi Weingarten, retail union leader Stuart Appelbaum, Public Employees Federation VP Pat Baker, and New York State Credit Union League president William Mellin.

We wonder if this show of institutional strength is aimed at the public or at the other contestants — amid continuing pressure from some black leaders to unite behind a single black candidate — and whether any of the VIP’s at tomorrow’s event will wade into the race issue.
