Two Democratic Parties

Two cities. Two Democratic conference fund-raisers. One night.

Last night, the Democratic Assembly Campaign Committee had a fund-raiser in Saratoga while the Democratic Senate Campaign Committee had a fund-raiser — with Eliot Spitzer — in Manhattan.

It just goes to show that being in the same party doesn’t necessarily mean working together on policy or politics. Assembly Democrats have bucked the governor on a variety of issues — picking a comptroller, agreeing to a budget, awarding pay raises for legislators — while Senate Democrats have largely been more accommodating.

I'm guessing that the governor's choice about where to go last night wasn't a hard one.
