Candidate ratings for the general election are done. Stuff has gone to print and mailings are going out.

Aside from the fact that the Republican establishment is the biggest support of Gov. Cuomo, there is other funny shit going on:
- Too much niceness – Notwithstanding a little snipping here and there, there isn’t much acrimony between the party and the candidates.
