    New Yorkers have learned the importance of having a competent lieutenant governor -- just ask Eliot Spitzer, or Dick Ravitch for that matter.

    Now, Republican gubernatorial hopeful Rick Lazio is expected to announce his pick for a No. 2 on Thursday.

    Sources close to Lazio says it's Greg Edwards, the upstate Chautaqua County Executive who has the backing of Conservative Party Chairman Mike Long.

    Lazio is expected to introduce Edwards Thursday afternoon at his Manhattan campaign office.
