Multiple sources here and here are saying Carl Paladino may be jumping into the NY Governor race. He is a successful businessman and developer, and has been very outspoken against much of what’s wrong in NY. He is being supported by the Tea Party movement, and it looks like for now he will be running under that party’s line.
I don’t know his name recognition numbers in the NYC area but in Western New York he is very well known. He has purchased radio ads with his own money, calling out local leaders for many shady moves. He’s not afraid to call things as they are, and it gets people talking about what’s wrong in NY.
He has the right message – now we need to see if he can get the funding and support.
