For anyone keeping tabs, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo’s public relation team on the Tappan Zee is selling a bridge – and from the looks of things, it's got a lot of leaders buying into the new span.

Since higher $14 tolls were mentioned as a likelihood by the administration a week ago, the bridge’s PR team has put out eight releases trumpeting a growing list of supporters of the plan. Wednesday was particularly high volume – there were three releases touting  a new TZ.

Stay tuned: There are still some folks out there who aren’t on the list, so there’s plenty more to come. … Probably in a few hours.
