New York Gubernatorial Factoid of the Day

From NYTimes:

On the basis of unofficial returns, the 62 percent of the vote that Mr. Cuomo received on Tuesday was the third highest of any New York candidate for governor in nearly two centuries. Eliot Spitzer, who garnered 69 percent four years ago, tops the list, followed by Mr. Cuomo’s father, Mario M. Cuomo, who was re-elected with 65 percent of the vote in 1986.

I don't know whether to go with a "Eliot Spitzer got 69%, eh?" or a "And everything worked out fine after that" joke.
