Upper East Side in Knots

As far as local politics go, the East Side seems to be divided when it comes to this year’s race for Attorney General.

An invitation to Mark Green’s upcoming comedic fundraiser listed as a vice chair of the event William Samuels, whose sister, Jacqui, is a fundraiser for Carolyn Maloney.

And two East Side District Leaders, Sally Minard and Linda Foa, who are listed as benefactor and patron, respectively, are also close to Maloney. (Ms. Minard held a fundraiser for the congresswoman at her home last year.)

The catch, of course, is that Maloney is supporting Andrew Cuomo, who won the endorsement of the Lex Club by a vote of 69 to 23 over Mark Green after she endorsed him.

Maybe her friends didn’t get the memo.

2. The general election. In November, whichever two candidates make it out of the gubernatorial primary will face off to become the next New Jersey governor. While Phil Murphy (pictured) is the presumed favorite in the race due to current New Jersey Governor Chris Christie’s dismal approval ratings tanking Republican credibility for many NJ voters, the results are still up in the air. Additionally, with 11 months until the race, there is still ample time for a dynamic shift that could leave another candidate at the top.
