It’s sort of the height of political tragedy when Fred Dicker writes about your primary campaign in the past tense. In July.

As a question of pure media logistics, though, is there any reason for the press to be treating the Suozzi campaign more seriously than, say, Jonathan Tasini’s?

On one hand, Suozzi entered his race with the intention of winning, and Tasini — I think it’s safe to say — didn’t. And Suozzi is an actual, semi-famous public official with a measurable (if controversial) record of accomplishment.

On the other, as Tasini happily noted, they’re not in appreciably different positions in the polls.
