Wow, Carl Paladino has already had one small victory in addition to his primary win on Tuesday....He has Democrat Andrew Cuomo seeking to publicly grasp the Tea Party mantra of less government and lower taxes.
On Thursday, Mr Cuomo said he has been the one talking the talk and will be able to walk the walk and he can do it without the cautic and divisive rhetoric some feel is part of Mr. Paladion's pitch.
I like it....As the likely winner, its great if Mr. Cuomo can campaign in an environment where he will have keep mouthing his stance on shared sacrifice and cutting spending and taxes.....
Some think Mr. Paladino has a shot at victory......to do so he will have to make some rhetorical concessions.
But at the very least, keep beating the drum on Tea Party principles and reform of Albany...The voters will then decide who should reside on Eagle Street based on those criteria. That would never have happened if Rick Lazio had been the nominee.
Andrew Cuomo claimed yesterday that he -- and not bombastic bomb-throwing Buffalo developer Carl Paladino -- is the real Tea Party candidate for governor this year - NYPOST.com
