Calls for Alan Hevesi’s resignation are coming in from other Democrats.

The Daily News asks if Hevesi is nuts, while The Post and The Times Herald-Record endorse Hevesi’s opponent.

The “chauffeur” at the center of the Hevesi storm gets profiled.

Eliot Spitzer is poised to take back his endorsement of Hevesi, but not to ask him to resign, reports The Sun. Here is what Spitzer said yesterday.

The Times corrects a story from yesterday and reports that Joe Lieberman has in fact used the phrase “stay the course” in recent years.

Mike Bloomberg is raising money for Joe Lieberman at a Chicago fundraiser tonight, and is busy fund-raising for other candidates too.

Rudy Giuliani hired Margaret Hoover, a fund-raiser connected to Karl Rove.

Eliot Spitzer and John Faso agree on reforming member items in Albany.

And Rush Limbaugh goes after Michael J. Fox.
