Connor endangered, Diamondstone nears win

Progressive Democrat Ken Diamondstone is moving closer to an upset in Tuesday's Democratic primary for State Senate. Diamondstone is running for State Senate in the 25th district, which includes parts of Cobble Hill, Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn Heights, DUMBO, Williamsburg, Greenpoint, Tribeca, Chinatown, the Lower East Side, Soho and Greenwich Village.

Errol Louis has added Diamondstone's opponent, incumbent Marty Connor, to the short list of endangered incumbents. From the Daily News article:
"Diamondstone has begun sending out mailings that pound Connor for, among other things, his past alliances with the likes of Lenora Fulani of the Independence Party and his close ties to disgraced ex-Assemblyman Clarence Norman (for whom Connor presided over sham judicial conventions where preselected party favorites were named to the state Supreme Court bench).

The key outside factors that make an upset likely are an endorsement of Diamondstone by The New York Times and aggressive help from the Working Families Party, which has made the race a priority for Tuesday."

Be part of an upset in the making - email Patrick Van Keerbergen to volunteer at the polls on Tuesday.

Update: More on this upset in the making in the New York Times, the Politicker, and the Courier-Life.
