Murphy endorsed by Working Families, Spitzer to host primetime CNN show

Rep. Scott Murphy, D-Glens Falls, has accepted the endorsement of the Working Families Party. This is his second third party endorsement in as many weeks, last Wednesday he accepted the Independence Party line.

"I am honored to accept the endorsement of the Working Families Party," Murphy said in a statement. "I pledge to continue fighting to ease the burden on New York's small businesses and middle class families so we can work together to renew the Upstate economy."

In other news, Gov. Eliot Spitzer is set to co-host an hour-long primetime round table discussion show with Pulitzer Prize winning columnist Kathleen Parker starting this fall. The show will air at 8 p.m., replacing Campbell Brown.

“Kathleen is an extraordinary intellect whose sharp observations and wit are certain to resonate with viewers,” Spitzer said in a statement released by CNN. “I look forward to working alongside her in a discussion that will inform, challenge, and entertain. I am grateful to CNN for the opportunity to co-host a show that will advance the discussion of the defining issues of our time.”
