Democratic convention: An unknown gives it a throw

Bill Samuels is running for lieutenant governor, as the AP's Mike Gormley reports.

He's running on a reform agenda, posted here.

His "New Vision" brochures were distributed under the doors to rooms all over the Rye Hilton Hotel.

The gubernatorial nominee's pick is almost assured that spot, so Samuels' effort is seen as quixotic.

Top-of-the-ticket nominee Andrew Cuomo is expected to make his selection by tomorrow.
