Last Minute Rumors and Conspiracies

Here are two (contradictory) things we’ve just heard about the scramble for the Attorney General designation in Buffalo:

2) The Cuomo campaign is in negotiations to cut a deal with Mark Green to keep Denise O’Donnell from getting on the ballot.

And now Ben is reporting that Green’s aides have given up hope of getting to 25 percent.

What does it all mean? If Cuomo is the only candidate to get to 25, which of the other candidates will see the race through to the end? And if the field narrows, will any of them be able to compete with Cuomo’s money and institutional support?
