- We haven't even finished this years election and already we're seeing polls for next years. Anyway, and this shocked, shocked, us, it seems that Hillary Clinton and Eliot Spitzer are the clear crowd favorites to win in their respective elections. Which might mean something if the election weren't a year away.
- But back to the present... Bloomberg has agreed to do two debates, but only one of the two debates sponsored by the Campaign Finance Board. Instead of attending the October 6 debate at the Apollo (which will instead only showcase Ferrer and Conservative candidate Thomas V. Ognibene) he will attend one sponsored by the League of Women Voters and the second Campaign Finance Board debate, both of which occur days before the election (the Times proposes that this is a way to keep Ferrer's profile as low as possible all the way to the finish line).
- Meanwhile Ferrer is getting into some trouble for stumping with homophobic state senator Ruben Diaz Sr., a man who Ferrer once referred to as a "political arsonist."
- And to top it off, both candidates racked up more union endorsements yesterday.
