Maloney Dumps Green for Cuomo

John Koblin caught this interesting remark from last night’s AG’s debate, where Sean Patrick Maloney switches who he thinks is the second-best candidate in the race.

“Well, I think Mark is the second best candidate but he’s going to lose this race so it’s hard for me to support him. So a few weeks ago, I’d say Mark, but tonight I’d say Andrew.”

Update: This other quote from Maloney, I think, helps put his other remark in context. Maloney ties Green’s electability directly to Green’s negativity.

“I think you’ve taken the Democratic Party down to defeat more times than anybody in the last 30 years, and one of the reasons is because you don’t give people something to vote for.”
