Devlin: The Day After

A day after Kim Devlin’s official departure, Tom Suozzi’s campaign still says that all is rosy.

David Chauvin, a Suozzi spokesman, said that “there is a renewed sense of energy” and that they feel very “fortunate to have Paul Rivera, who is hitting the ground running. There is a new level of excitement because Paul is really bringing to the table new ideas.”

No word yet if Rivera will be as genteel with reporters as Devlin claimed to have been. As the Times noted in apurposefully skeptical kicker to its story today, she claimed that she never raised her voice at a reporter.

Ah, well — we’ll leave that one.
