INSIDE THE PAPERS

The New York Times

Michael Grynbaum previews the Michael Grimm-Mark Murphy Congressional race.

Thomas Kaplan notes: “As they seek to maintain a power base in Albany, New York’s Republicans have found an unlikely standard-bearer: the state’s Democratic governor, Andrew M. Cuomo.”

New York Post

Doug Montero writes: “Disgraced ex-New York police commissioner Bernie Kerik arrived at court today ahead of his testimony for the prosecution at the perjury trial of two former friends. Kerik is expected take the stand against at Frank and Peter DiTommaso later today. A gaunt-looking Kerik arrived wearing a dark blue jumpsuit and his wrists shackled at the waist. He refused to say anything as he was escorted into the courthouse by two US Marshals.”

In his column, Fred Dicker writes: “Several of New York’s biggest cities — including Yonkers, Rochester and Syracuse — are ‘close to bankruptcy’ and are looking for a bailout from Gov. Cuomo’s administration, The Post has learned.”

Bruce Golding notes: “The NYPD’s stop-and-frisk tactics are coming under the gun. An ‘unprecedented’ court hearing begins today into allegations that cops have been unlawfully stopping minorities outside thousands of low-income apartment buildings in The Bronx.”

New York Daily News

Ken Lovett previews: “Gov. Cuomo will endorse one of four dissident state senators who broke away from the Senate Democrats to form their own independent caucus. On Monday, Cuomo will throw his support behind Rockland County Sen. David Carlucci, a source close to the governor said. The Independent Democratic Caucus has had a close relationship with the Senate GOP majority and could play a major role in which party leads the chamber next year.”

He also notes: “New York has a supersized share of the nation’s “super PAC” donors — and the flurry of unlimited fund-raising may also impact state and local races. A new analysis by Common Cause/New York to be released Monday shows 10 of the country’s 39 donors who gave at least $1 million to super PACs are from New York.”

Lovett writes: “She doesn’t get the same buzz as fellow New Yorkers Hillary Clinton and Gov. Cuomo, but Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand suddenly has turned up on the short list of potential presidential candidates from New York. She set tongues wagging about her future at last month’s Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C., with an address to delegates from Iowa, an early proving ground in every presidential race.”

Until tomorrow.
