A key element of Eliot Spitzer’s tour throughout the state in recent weeks has been to visit the Assembly districts of officials he rubbed the wrong way. One of his first stops was to Syracuse, home of Bill Magnerelli.
This morning, Spitzer is visiting the Manhattan Assembly District of Keith Wright to speak at the Upper Manhattan Workforce Career Center. Wright had been critical of Spitzer way before the scandal with the troopers, and he told me that Spitzer's people called him to invite him to the event.
But Wright isn’t ready to make nice yet. Or at least, not ready enough to to clear out his schedule to accommodate the governor.
“I just had other plans," he told me, when I asked him about the visit. "Other things to do.”
