Bruce Blakeman, the former president officer of the Nassau legislature, has been making the rounds upstate. Here is an account of his Syracuse visit. Steve Levy, possible gubernatorial candidate, had already left the Capital District for his meeting with GOP leaders. Blakeman tonight is due to drop into the tony Fort Orange Club in Albany where Sen. Dean Skelos (R-Rockville Centre) is holding a fundraiser. Also on Blakeman's schedule this week were Buffalo and Rochester, and he is due to hold a press conference at the Capitol tomorrow.
