  •  Right. But Cuomo sold Dems out anyway with (7+ / 0-)

    redistricting.

    NY Progressive Dems are in a "nothing left to lose" situation.

    They could use a veteran pol who also has nothing left to lose.

    •  NY progressive dems (9+ / 0-)

      should have acted in the last election when Cuomo did nothing to help the Dems take the state senate.   It was clear what was happening.  But groups like the WFP endorsed Cuomo anyway.  

      Unions are the big factor in all of this.  They have plenty left to lose.  And they wil protect themselves before gambling on supporting a real progressive candidate.  They are in bed with big money.  And they won't all band together to challenge cuomo.  Because they have something left to lose.

      The activists and progressives who have nothing left to lose will be unhappy.  How much money do they have?  none.  

      Welcome to the world of a NY liberal.  Even the unions support your enemies.
