New York State Senate Independent Democratic Conference http://wamc.org en Liz Benjamin - The Strange Bedfellows of Campaign Season http://wamc.org/post/liz-benjamin-strange-bedfellows-campaign-season <p>Two endorsements made yesterday in state Senate races proved - yet again - that old adage about the game of politics and the strange bedfellows its players choose as they seek to achieve, maintain or consolidate power.</p><p>The first came from Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who is now two for two, technically speaking, in bestowing his general election support on fellow Democrats.</p><p>Cuomo's first nod went to Sen. Joe Addabbo, one of the Senate Republicans' top targets this fall who is facing a spirited challenge from a GOP rising star, New York City Councilman Eric Ulrich.</p> Tue, 16 Oct 2012 16:35:00 +0000 Liz Benjamin 49960 at http://wamc.org
