Woodside’s Eric Gioia might take Weiner’s spot
From the NY Times
New York Democrats have approached former Councilman Eric N. Gioia of Queens about running for Anthony Weiner’s seat, according to two people briefed on the conversations. Gioia, these people said, is open to the possibility. He declined to comment.
NOTE: Gioia has a campaign war chest. He generated $2.2m in contributions when he unsuccessfully ran for NYC public advocate in 2009.
