Morgenthau for Vance, Some Morgenthau Supporters for Others

When retiring Manhattan district attorney Robert Morgenthau endorsed Cy Vance as his successor, it was by some measures the most significant (if not the most surprising) endorsement in the race so far. Morgenthau has won reelection nine times and has national name recognition.
But as Vance’s opponents are pointing out, it’s far from automatic that Morgenthau’s considerable political support will transfer along with the endorsement.
An aide to another candidate in the race, Richard Aborn, distributed a list of people and groups that supported Morgenthau in his reelection four years ago, but who now are backing Aborn.
At the endorsement this morning, Morgenthau was asked if he’s disappointed more of his supporters, including those in the City Council, weren’t following him in supporting Vance.
