Spitzer, Silver and June O'Neill

Eliot Spitzer spent the morning and afternoon yesterday speaking to the Assembly Democratic Conference at the Embassy Suite in Battery Park City, where “the relationship between Shelly and Eliot was clearly cordial,” one Democratic lawmaker who was there emailed to say.

Another legislator who attended the get-together said that talk among the rank and file eventually turned to who would be the next Democratic State Party chair and that the name of June O’Neill, the St. Lawrence County chair, came up as a possibility.

How many others are realistically in the running for the position?

Update: O’Neill may be one of three people to head the state party, according to this Times Union article.
