The Working Families Party announced -- http://wfpjournal.blogspot.com/ -- yestereday the death of its Fair Share bill. It blamed the State Senate for the defeat. It made no mention of the opposition to Fair Share of Elliot Spitzer, its candidate for Gov.
Empire Zone ( http://empirezone.blogs.nytimes.com/?p=238 ) asked, this morning (reasonably, in my view) whether this would end WFP support for Senator Nick Spano, the Yonkers Republican whose re-election was delivered by the WFP two years ago. Spano has been active in favor progressive issues including Fair Share and Emergency Contraception during the last two years. He faces Andrea Stuart-Cousins (his opponent of two years ago) this time. Jennifer Medina quotes Dan Cantor to the effect that WFP is keeeping its options on Spano open.
