Antigun carpetbagger Sean Eldridge makes Roll Call’s, “The 9 Biggest Candidate Flameouts“:

Sean Eldridge, Democrat, New York’s 19th District

One of 17 Republicans representing districts Obama carried in 2012, GOP Rep. Chris Gibson started the cycle as a top Democratic target. Democrats were hopeful Eldridge — the wealthy husband of Facebook co-founder Chris Hughes — could mount a serious challenge.

But Eldridge stumbled right out the gate with a New York Times profile that made him look out of touch in this largely blue-collar district, nestled in the far-reaching New York City suburbs and stretching into the Catskill mountains. As a result, Republicans nicknamed him “$ean Eldridge” — a moniker that’s stuck with him throughout the campaign.

Eldridge’s bid never really recovered, and the DCCC never reserved television airtime here to change that.

Rating: Leans Republican

Latest poll has Gibson with a 24-point lead over Eldridge.

The Cuomo campaign is hiding his running mate:

“… since Primary Day, Kathy Hochul, Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s candidate for lieutenant governor, has practically shunned New York City, campaigning almost exclusively north and east of the five boroughs.  The former Buffalo area congresswoman never seemed comfortable in the swarm of reporters and the cacophony of a city so different than her sleepy upstate home–and now, having vanquished her glamorous opponent in the Democratic primary, she can spend her time elsewhere …”

Translation: NYC Democrats do not see her being on the ticket as a plus.

“… Since defeating Tim Wu, the running mate of Mr. Cuomo’s Democratic rival Zephyr Teachout, Ms. Hochul has stumped in places like Syracuse, Long Island, Poughkeepsie and Palmyra …”

Really?  I can hardly find any mention of her in the media, let alone an appearance schedule.  Hochul is keeping as low a profile as possible without being declared legally dead.  She simply isn’t generating any media buzz for these campaign stops.  I have to assume they are for the party faithful-only.
