Cuomo Wins, Maloney Shows

As expected, openly gay NY Attorney General candidate Sean Patrick Maloney finished third in yesterday's primary, as Andrew Cuomo easily steamrollered over Maloney and Mark Green. Cuomo is (not incidentally), the son of former NY Governor Mario Cuomo, as again, name recognition trumps all among the feeble-minded electorate. (By the way, Cuomo presently supports gay marriage, although he has not in the recent past.) I met Mark Green a couple of times during the campaign and especially appreciated his appearance at the Iran vigil, so I'm disappointed that neither Green nor Maloney did well against Cuomo. Still, Maloney impressed the party's star-making machine, so keep your eye on him, there's definitely more to come.
