More Races, More Waiting

Eliot Spitzer announced today that special elections will be held on March 27 for the vacancies created by the election of Assemblyman Tom DiNapoli as state Comptroller and by the death of Assemblyman John Lavelle.

Which leaves us to wait on the possible announcement of an a third election — to succeed Assemblyman Pete Grannis of Manhattan. It’s a contest that seems to be well underway despite the fact that Spitzer’s nomination of Grannis to be the state’s environmental conservation commissioner still hasn’t been approved by the Republican-controlled state Senate.
