There is one Democratic Party in New York State, but there are at least two offices from which Democratic activities are operating, I note in a story this week.
Eliot Spitzer’s campaign committee, along with almost every major organ of the Democratic Party in New York State, is in (or heading to) 461 Park Avenue South. Not moving in is the Democratic Assembly Campaign Committee, who have their own office in Albany and, coincidentally, had a fundraiser earlier this week in upstate New York, the same night Spitzer was in Manhattan raising cash for Democrats in the state Senate.
“We had this scheduled a long time ago, before that event was scheduled,” chairman of Democratic Assembly Campaign Committee, Ron Canestrari told me. “And it happens. I don’t see it as of any importance.”
