Morning Read: Blood in the Water; Bain’s Disappointment; Bill Clinton Goes Off-Script

Both the New York Post and the Daily News ridiculed Yvette Clarke.

There is a new campaign to drive Asian American voters to the polls.

Gotham Gazette dove into the Adriano Espaillat vs. Guillermo Linares race, entitling their piece, “Second-Longest Running Show Now on Broadway is Uptown.”

They traded barbs in a recent debate.

Assembly Democrats “smell blood in the water” and are assessing whether Shelly Silver could survive a coup attempt.

A columnist called Mr. Silver “the Joe Paterno of the state capital.”

Vito Lopez has become a campaign issue for the state’s Republican Party.

Lopez was once a fearsome opponent to run against.

The News urged Brooklyn’s County Committee members to fight back against Lopez.

Shirley Huntley’s campaign kept paying funds to her family and friends.

John Liu’s controversies were a moderate concern for his trip to South Korea and Taiwan.

Kirsten Gillibrand’s star is on the rise.

Watch Chuck Schumer’s speech.

The New York Times supports Eric Schneiderman’s investigation into Bain Capital and other private equity firms.

Bain is disappointed that Democratic convention speakers keep attacking them.

Bill Clinton pretty much killed it in his speech, which is receiving rave reviews.

He went off script a few times.

The Romney campaign’s response:

“President Clinton drew a stark contrast between himself and President Obama tonight. Bill Clinton worked with Republicans, balanced the budget, and after four years he could say you were better off. Barack Obama hasn’t worked across the aisle – he’s barely worked with other Democrats – and has the worst economic record of any president in modern history. President Clinton’s speech brought the disappointment and failure of President Obama’s time in office clearly into focus.”
