Carl Paladino gathered 28,000+ signatures which, assuming they withstand the inevitable court challenges, is enough to put him on the GOP primary ballot against Rick Lazio.  Lazio meanwhile is late in filing his July campaign disclosure report.  This race is starting to remind me of 1990 when the GOP put up Pierre Rinfret.

All five Democrat candidates for state AG have plenty of cash on hand which should ensure a nasty primary where they try to kill each other off.  If Eric Schneiderman goes down in the fight I’ll be happy.
