Andrew Cuomo isn’t doing interviews. (Really.)
Unlike the abrasive candidate who barnstormed the state hoping to be Governor in 2002, or the one four years later who confessed to being more comfortable speaking to hundreds of people from a stage than to a handful in a living room, Mr. Cuomo is avoiding the spotlight. Or Read More
Also in this week’s paper, I look how Andrew Cuomo is winning over critics in uncharacteristic fashion: by doing his job and not letting self-promotion get in the way.
“What we’re seeing is a guy who sees the value of letting the work speak for itself, as opposed to engaging in gratuitous public relations,” Read More
While Eliot Sptizer, Joel Klein and other officials are conducting public efforts to win over their critics, one office-holder you’d think would be rushing into the spotlight is keeping a low profile.
75 days into Andrew Cuomo’s tenure as
Sherrif of Wall Street Attorney General, he’s among the least attention-seeking officials. Just like his campaign, Read More
Don’t expect any last-minute attacks on Hillary Clinton from John Spencer in these waning days of the campaign.
“We’re running a campaign on principles,” Spencer’s spokesman Rob Ryan told me. “We’re talking about issues that are core republican issues, and we’re talking about Senator Clinton’s failure to properly serve the people of New York.” Read More
A reader notes John Spencer is in a category of his own.
Unlike John Faso, Jeanine Pirro and Chris Callaghan, Spencer hasn’t come out with an ad criticizing his opponent for being “friend” or “running mate” of Alan Hevesi.
(Hillary, who is flustered with answering questions about Hevesi, called him a Read More
While things may look grim for John Spencer, who is once again in the position of having to deny his own quotes, he’s certainly getting more attention now.
He’ll be on NY1 tonight, Fox News this afternoon and he’ll appear tonight on Inside Edition. (Seriously.)
As for apologizing to Hillary for the Read More
So if you think turnout is going to be low for the Democrats, just think about the Republicans. Without primaries for governor or attorney general to attract voters to the polls, the only thing going for them — from the perspective of moving voters to polling places — is the Jerry Springer-esque Senate contest between Read More
John Spencer is going statewide with the 30-second biographical ad he released right before his debate with KT McFarland last month. A Spencer spokesman said they’ll be running the ad on cable, since, according to their research, Republican primary votes watch plenty of cable news (read: Fox News).
Spencer’s other ads, with images of Read More
Apparently Rob Ryan and the John Spencer campaign team have hit a nerve.
Morgan Ortagus, KT McFarland’s usually mild-mannered and sweet-natured spokeswoman, just sent Ryan an angry letter accusing the Spencer campaign of falsely claiming the support of National Republican Senatorial Committee chair Elizabeth Dole.
Here’s are a couple of samples:
“The fact Read More
As KT McFarland shakes off today’s Post report and prepares for her big fund-raiser tonight with all those Reagan-era Cold Warriors, Rob Ryan wonders (aloud, to us) what one attendee thinks about a recent statement from KT campaign manager Ed Rollins.
The attendee: General P.X. Kelley, former commandant of the Marine Corps. Read More
