 Team Baldeo

Pictured here at Malcolm Smith’s inauguration ceremony in Queens on Friday night are Albert Baldeo, the Democratic candidate who narrowly lost to Republican state Senator Serph Maltese, and political consultant Gary Tilzer, who blogs under the name “Oneshirt”.

The two have been making the rounds at Democratic events, reminding everyone that they came within about 900 votes of ousting an incumbent state senator — without any organizational aid from the party. Needless to say, they wouldn’t mind a little help the second time around.
