All quiet on the Cuomo/Paladino front -- so far

 Carl Paladino, who didn’t miss an opportunity to criticize the news media over the past several months, has just canceled a scheduled press conference.

The Republican, who lost badly in last night’s election to Andrew Cuomo, was to make himself available to reporters in Buffalo at 1p.m. But his campaign sent around word a half hour before calling off the event.

Meanwhile, Cuomo has so far had a remarkably quiet day – publicly at least. His campaign was not planning – yet anyway – any appearances often traditional for gubernatorial winners in New York, such as a day-after press conference or a victory “fly-around’’ to communities outside Manhattan.

There was some talk of an announcement or two from his campaign today, but that has not happened yet. Whether it would be transition-team related, or some sort of pronouncement on the worsening condition of the state budget is uncertain.
