POLITICO New York Playbook: GIULIANI gets loud in Cleveland -- MURDOCHS vs. AILES? -- CLINTON way up in NY, still

07/19/2016 07:28 AM EDT

By Azi Paybarah in Cleveland and Jimmy Vielkind in Albany, with Daniel Lippman and Addy Baird

RUDY'S CALL TO ORDER -- Rudy Giuliani told Republicans on the first night of their national convention, "What I did for New York, Donald Trump will do for America." He attacked Obama's foreign policy, protesters' rhetoric against police, and Hillary Clinton's judgment on just about everything. It was 16 non-stop minutes of fist-pumping, hand-wringing and screaming. "I thought he delivered an excellent speech," said State Senate Majority Leader John Flanagan of Long Island. "And I'm only twenty feet away. ... I'm literally sitting in the second row, looking right at him." Flanagan, in a blue shirt, with a checkered blue tie, was inside the Lobby Court Bar, where many New York delegates were hanging out Monday night. "I've never seen him more on fire," he said.

Rep. Joseph Crowley, a Democrat from Queens who had listened to the speech near the convention, where it was being shown on giant screens, said Giuliani was in rare form. He called the speech "shrill" and "fear-mongering," amounting to a bunch of "screaming and yelling." -- Azi Paybarah

-- "Rudy, recycled," POLITICO's Glenn Thrush and Sarah Wheaton: "Rudy Giuliani will never be "America's Mayor" again, but on Monday, he was at least the mayor of red America."

-- U.S. Senate candidate Wendy Long, who is due to address New York delegates this morning, likens herself to Donald Trump. "There is a parallel between what [Trump] is fighting for on the national level and what I'm fighting for in the state of New York," said Long. "The parallels are very strong. Schumer is sort of a clone of Hillary Clinton." Schumer, according to Long, is "joined with [Clinton] at the hip. He's one of her biggest supporters. Everything that is wrong with Hillary Clinton is also wrong with him. It's sort of a parallel fight."

-- Newt Gingrich, the former House speaker and, until last week, prospective Donald Trump running mate, told a room full of Republicans from New York that they can make their state red again if they follow Trump's example. "The Trump model of campaigning, you get up in the morning, send a couple of tweets before you get out of bed, wander downstairs and get on the phone and do Fox and Friends Live and do Morning Joe live, then have a little breakfast ... send a video to his 8 million Facebook friends [and] finally end the day with an hour on O'Reilly or Greta or Sean," Gingrich said.

-- "I don't think so," U.S. Sen. Chuck Schumer answered.

Q-POLL: NY NOT IN PLAY - POLITICO New York's Nick Niedzwiadek: Clinton leads Trump by double digits in New York, according to a new poll that casts doubt on the idea floated by some that Trump could be the first Republican presidential nominee to carry the state since 1984. According to the latest Quinnipiac University poll released Tuesday, Clinton leads Trump 47 percent to 35 percent among New York voters. Earlier this week, state Republican chairman Ed Cox and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich held up Trump's victory in the New York primary as evidence of an unorthodox coalition of support. Others have suggested he might be able to put otherwise solidly Democratic states in play this year. "As Republicans rally in Cleveland and Democrats prepare for their Philadelphia convention, Hillary Clinton seems to have her adopted home state votes safely locked up," Maurice Carroll, assistant director of Quinnipiac University Poll, said in a release accompanying the poll results.

I'M STILL WAITING FOR THE SECOND AVENUE SUBWAY, from DNA Info's Alexandra Leon: " Wider doors, accordion-style cars, countdown clocks and Wi-Fi access are some of the features included in a plan to build more than a 1,000 subway cars and redesign 31 stations across the city, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced. Cuomo and MTA officials presented new renderings and details of the proposed redesigns, which were announced earlier this year, at the New York Transit Museum in Downtown Brooklyn Monday morning."

DE BLASIO'S NONPROFITS GENERATE WINDFALL FOR HIS FAVORITE CONSULTANTS - POLITICO New York's Laura Nahmias: The web of nonprofits Mayor Bill de Blasio and his top aides helped create over the past two and a half years to advance his political priorities have claimed success in achieving their specific policy goals. But the three nonprofits - the Campaign for One New York, Progressive Agenda Committee and United for Affordable NYC - have also been a windfall for the handful of consulting firms with close personal ties to de Blasio. More than 60 percent of the millions of dollars raised by the three nonprofits over the last three years have gone to a handful of firms: the law firms Kantor Davidoff and Genova Burns; polling and strategy firm Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research; and political consulting firms AKPD Media, Berlin Rosen, Hilltop Public Solutions and Red Horse Strategies. These firms took in $3.07 million in payments from the nonprofit groups, out of roughly $4.99 million in donations.

CUOMO WANTS NEW SUBWAY CARS - POLITICO New York's Dana Rubinstein: On Monday morning - the same day an MTA maintenance car derailed on the LIRR, causing widespread cancellations and delays - Gov. Andrew Cuomo declared the region's transportation system "a personal priority of mine." Cuomo, the occasionally MTA-averse governor, made the remarks during his second MTA press conference in as many weeks. It was his second visit to the downtown Brooklyn Transit Museum this year. To demonstrate his now-energetic embrace of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, which he effectively controls, Cuomo announced that later this week, the MTA would solicit bids to replace 1,025 of its more than 6,400 subway cars, many of which date back several decades. Up to 750 of the new cars will be open-ended, meaning they will connect to each other like articulated buses, rather than be separated by sliding doors.

JOCKEYING -- With sights on speakership, Van Bramer raises almost $70K in the last six months -- POLITICO New York's Gloria Pazmino: "Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer, who is openly campaigning to become the City Council's next speaker, raised nearly $70,000 in the last six months, new Campaign Finance Board filings show. In the disclosure period covering January 12th through July 11th, Van Bramer, a Democrat from Queens, collected $66,938 and spent $16,978, records show. Overall during the current period, which covers the last two years, Van Bramer has raised nearly $300,000 and has $240,000 in cash on hand.


-- APOCALYPSE AILES? - Did your heart kind of skip a beat a when you saw this headline from Gabriel Sherman pop up yesterday afternoon? "Murdochs Have Decided to Remove Roger Ailes - the Only Question Now Is When."

If the investigation regarding claims of sexual harassment against the Fox News chief proves to have the result Sherman's sources are suggesting -- "Rupert Murdoch and sons Lachlan and James ... of parent company 21st Century Fox ... have settled on removing the 76-year-old executive ... [A]ll three are in agreement that Ailes needs to go" -- it would signal nothing less than a seismic shift in the power corridors of cable news, and arguably media at large.

Fox News isn't commenting, and 21st Century Fox has only said, "This matter is not yet resolved and the review is not concluded," a statement that leaves plenty of wiggle room while at the same time falling well short of a denial.

-- YAHOO EARNINGS A SNOOZE - Media and tech insiders were expecting fireworks along with the release of Yahoo's Q2 financials yesterday, same day final bids were due for the failing former Silicon Valley powerhouse. Instead they got more of a single sparkler. We'll leave it to Kara Swisher to tell you how it went down: "Yahoo CEO gamely delivers weak results no one cares about and no news on sale that everyone does."

BINGE WATCH NO MORE from The Verge's Joseph Lovinger and Ben Popper: "Netflix released its earnings report for the second quarter [Monday]. The company was one of 2015's best performing stocks, but has seen its share price stumble in recent months on projections of slower growth. Today it reported $1.97 billion in revenue and net income of $41 million. Adding to worries about its growth, the company added just 1.54 million subscribers, well below its own projections of 2.5 million new customers. The stock [was] down around 14 percent in after-hours trading."

EAT BEAT -- New York gets its first outdoor sushi bar, from Eater's Kat Odell: "Those still lamenting sushi chef David Bouhadana's abrupt depart from hit East Village omakase bar Sushi Dojo will be pleased to know that he's back ... sort of. But his latest venture is separate from Sushi Bouhadana, the 12-seat omakase bar and whiskey lounge on Eldridge he plans to debut in October. Last Friday, Bouhadana-along with partner Derek Feldman-soft opened Sushi on Jones, a four seat, outdoor omakase bar pop-up in Noho's new micro food alley, The Bowery Market."


TRUMP CHANGE-"NYC real estate moguls pump more than $2.2M into Trump Victory fund," by The Real Deal's Will Parker: "Many of the biggest players in New York real estate have expressed their support for Donald Trump. But now, they're backing those words with their wallets. More than a dozen donors from the industry collectively gave about $2.2 million dollars to the Trump Victory election fund between late May and June 30, filings with the Federal Election Commission show. The fund, a joint agreement between Trump's campaign, the Republican National Committee and 11 state parties was first announced in May.

" Kalikow, of HJ Kalikow & Company, gave $449,000 to Trump Victory, close to the maximum amount of $449,400 the fund asked donors to contribute. (Kalikow's wife Mary contributed an extra $51,000.) Tom Barrack, CEO of Colony Capital and a longtime Trump buddy who is set to speak at the RNC's convention in Cleveland this week, gave $415,000. Others with industry ties who gave big include Stephen Feinberg, head of the private equity firm Cerberus Capital Management, who gave $339,400 and his wife Mary Feinberg, who matched that contribution."

HOUSEKEEPING-"Tusk, needling de Blasio, takes on City Hall's housing plan," by POLITICO New York's Sally Goldenberg: "Bradley Tusk, the former campaign manager for Michael Bloomberg who has launched his own campaign disparaging Mayor Bill de Blasio, is now taking aim at City Hall's 10-year housing plan. Tusk released an analysis of de Blasio's program on Monday that portrayed it as inadequate for the lowest-income New Yorkers and out of sync with the current mayor's rhetoric. Researchers at Tusk's consulting firm compared the area median incomes (AMIs) laid out for specific neighborhoods in de Blasio's plan with the actual income levels of residents currently living in those places and concluded some of the poorest New Yorkers would fail to qualify for much of the new housing. ...

"De Blasio's team accused Tusk of playing politics and defended its housing plan, which aims to build 80,000 below-market-rate housing units and preserve another 120,000 by 2024 -10 years after he took office. ... De Blasio's 2013 campaign manager, Bill Hyers, said Tusk should change his title from 'former political operative' to 'mediocre political operative.' 'His sham little group is a business advertising for him, not 'helping NYC.' He's paid nonstop by his big corporate clients to attack someone fighting for change, this time weirdly enough on technical reason,' Hyers added in an email."

BIG DEAL-"AllianceBernstein pays $100.4M for George Washington Hotel's ground lease," by The Real Deal's E.B. Solomont: "New York-based investment firm AllianceBernstein has scooped up a 99-year ground lease for the George Washington Hotel from Lloyd Goldman's BLDG Management for $100.4 million, property records show. The hotel - which played host to the likes of poet W. H. Auden and novelist Christopher Isherwood in the 1930s - was most recently used as a student dormitory by the School of Visual Arts. In April, Goldman's firm filed plans to restore the 148,767-square-foot property into a 417-room hotel, and add a restaurant, bar and ground-floor retail, according to permits filed with the city's Department of Buildings. BLDG, headed by Lloyd Goldman, bought the hotel through a foreclosure action in 1994. It made a bid of $6.8 million, court records show, but the final purchase price is unclear."
