From the folks at NY1 News in the city:
"State Democratic Chairman Jay Jacobs is urging Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand and former Tenn. Rep. Harold Ford Jr. to end their war of words.
"'I don't like the name calling. I don't think it's helpful,'' Jacobs told Elizabeth Kaledin on 'Inside City Hall.' 'I don't think it does anything to advance your candidacy. We're not picking a prom queen here. We're picking a person who is going to represent New York State. Talk about what you're going to do. If there's a complaint about what Kirsten Gillibrand has done as a Senator, point out how she voted and how you would have voted differently and why. That's a compelling campaign."
