NY-Gov: Cuomo officially in

Four Republicans are running for governor, but Rick Lazio (whom you may remember as Hillary Clinton's opponent in the 2000 Senate race) is favored to win the nomination. It hardly matters, since Cuomo beats Lazio and other potential Republican opponents easily. We are fortunate that current Governor David Paterson decided against seeking another term. The Democratic Governors Association won't have to spend money defending the New York seat now. We will need the DGA for several other tough governor's races around the country.
