The Post reports that “black foe” Charlie King is about to endorse Andrew Cuomo.

Jennifer Medina writes about Labor Day campaigning in the Connecticut Senate race and makes Lamont campaign manager Tom Swan the Man in the News.

The Times reports that Dan Garodnick is trying to put other people’s money where his mouth is trying to raise public and private money to buy Stuyvesant Town and Peter Cooper Village and rent them below market rates to middle class tenants.

Chuck Schumer gives the federal government a C- for their efforts to improve homeland security.
