Cuomo crushing

ny governor campaign money july 2010

Things are looking pretty good for Andrew Cuomo -- and pretty bad for Rick Lazio.

Cuomo's campaign reported yesterday that it has $23.6 million in cash on hand. Lazio's campaign? Almost $689k. Yep, that's thousand.

And in the Siena poll out this week, Cuomo was ahead of Lazio 60-28 in a hypothetical gubernatorial matchup. (Carl Paladino, who's trying to get on the ballot to challenge Lazio in a Republican primary, doesn't fare any better -- he loses 64-23 against Cuomo.)

With a lead like that, we might take an RV campaign vacation, too.

Dynastic politics are bad for everyone...Cuomo is probably going to be a bum. But Lazio is a sleazeball who never had a chance.
