Kellner Gets More Backing in Non-Race

Council member Jessica Lappin today endorsed Micah Kellner, providing another indication that the race for Assembly seat being vacated by Pete Grannis on the East Side may not turn out to be much of a contest at all.

Kellner also has the backing of Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney, and a prospective Democratic opponent, Barry Klein, has already dropped out.

The biggest obstacle for Kellner right now seems to be that, officially, there is no race yet.

Grannis has not yet been confirmed as the Spitzer administration’s Environmental Commissioner, thanks to the Republican-controlled Senate.
