In GOP scrap, Lazio plucks W. NYer for LG

Hey, it worked the second time out for Mario Cuomo. He plucked a guy from Chautauqua County for lieutenant governor who kept the job eight years. Now Greg Edwards, county executive, is unveiled as Rick Lazio's intended running mate, seen as an effort at geographic balance as well as to offset Steve Levy's experience as county executive, in Suffolk.

Reaction from Levy's campaign: ""Steve congratulates Greg on his selection and will be making an announcement in the future."

Meanwhile, Levy has announced support out of Fulton County.
