Rick Lazio Running for Governor, Wants to Abolish Senate


Former congressman Rick Lazio, who many may remember for accosting Hillary Clinton during a 2000 Senate debate, “fully intends to” run for governor, his spokesman said today. Not to be outdone by potential primary opponent Rudy Giuliani, who yesterday proposed a constitutional convention, Lazio has suggested that New York adopt a unicameral state legislature, which only Nebraska currently uses. Now, would that eradicate some of Albany’s dysfunction, or simply concentrate it in one place? [Newsday, NYDN]
