Faso's Chance

Tomorrow’s debate at Cornell University will represent John Faso’s best chance yet to slow the progress of the Eliot Spitzer juggernaut, even if the timing is less than ideal — coming just days after his first ethics controversy of the campaign. And as Tom Suozzi learned, Spitzer is a front-runner who isn’t afraid to attack his opponents at the podium.

Even though Faso has one ad running now, the debate will be the first time many New Yorkers are seeing his face. (The ad is an attack piece that doesn’t even mention Faso’s name, except to say that he paid for it.)

Any ideas on how Faso might go after Spitzer beyond the requisite tax-and-spend stuff?
