A Race, No Matter What

Okay, so maybe there is a real race on the East Side.

After a number of stalwart East Side Democrats have rallied around Micah Kellner for Assembly, Senator Liz Krueger is announcing an endorsement of her aide Susan Chamlin, who is running in the Democratic primary but hasn’t ruled out running on a third party line if she loses the nomination.

“She was the first person my Cheif of Staff and I hired,” Krueger wrote in a letter to supporters and forwarded to me. “Susan’s long record of accomplishment makes her the ideal candidate to fil the very big shoes of Pete Grannis.”

Krueger cast Chamlin as the reform-outsider in the race. “I need a colleague in the Assembly who will work with me to advance an agenda of real reform.”

The full letter is here.
