Man­hat­tan pres. Scott Stringer (D) — a one-time can­did­ate against Sen. Kirsten Gil­librand (D) — plans to en­dorse her today. Stringer: “Ob­vi­ously, she has suc­cess­fully gone through her own evol­u­tion on a lot of is­sues and has said she’s reach­ing out and learn­ing every day — and I think that’s sin­cere and real. I’m ac­tu­ally ex­cited to go out and cam­paign for her.”

In Mar., Stringer an­nounced he was form­ing an ex­plor­at­ory cmte to chal­lenge her, but he “ended his flir­ta­tion” in mid-May, after the WH asked Rep. Steve Is­rael (D-02) “to aban­don his own can­did­acy.” ‘06 can­did­ate Jonath­an Tas­ini (D) is already in the race, and Suf­folk Co. Maj. Lead­er Jon Cooper (D) “is still weigh­ing to run.” Stringer is Gil­librand’s first “would-be chal­lenger” to en­dorse her (Dovere, “City Hall News,” 12/6).
