Rasmussen announces that GOP NY Governor candidate Paladino is only 16% points behind Democrat Andrew Cuomo…
Cuomo is gonna win…
And this is Rasmussen where talking about….
The GOP poster child polling company…
But I did say last spring that Cuomo’s numbers had to drop from the 30% point lead range…
I watched Paladino on CNN right after he won his primary….
That’s all I can say…
But this is a New York race …
And Cuomo does have some skeleton’s from his past…
So the media will get the most they can out of a manufactured horse race…
Just crowning Cuomo as Governor….. is kinda boring….
[ GOP candidate Carl Paladino wasted no time in bashing his Democratic rival for governor Andrew Cuomo on Fox News Monday. ]
Maverick GOP gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino Monday morning ripped Democratic opponent Andrew Cuomo for “an arrogant, egotistical attitude.”
Appearing on Fox News Channel, Paladino said he is preparing several ads that will take aim at Cuomo’s “professional incompetence” while federal housing secretary under President Bill Clinton.
The Tea Party movement darling has knocked Cuomo for policies he says led to the recent subprime mortgage crisis, a charge Cuomo has vehemently denied.
Paladino, without getting specific, also said an ad will deal with “some personal things to illustrate to people that this man does not have the capability” to be governor.
“He has an arrogant, egotistical attitude about him that is wrong for the people,” Paladino said.
Showing no sign of tempering the combative style that helped earn him the Republican nomination for governor, Carl P. Paladino plans to release a taunting and belligerent letter on Monday that questions the manhood of his Democratic opponent, Andrew M. Cuomo, and derides him as a “king-designate” dependent on “daddy’s coattails.”
Asserting that Mr. Cuomo had refused to heed his calls for a face-to-face exchange, Mr. Paladino wrote: “Come out and debate like a man.”
“It’s difficult to understand why you, a polished veteran campaigner, scion of a political dynasty and king-designate, would fear a simple businessman from Buffalo, who candidly has never been in a debate in his life — except maybe in a bar,” Mr. Paladino wrote.
The chairman of the state’s Democratic Party, Jay Jacobs, said in a statement on Sunday night that Mr. Cuomo had already said he was open to a debate and assailed the tone of the letter. He added, “It seems Carl is melting down again.”
Debates aside, the letter itself seemed to quell any notion that Mr. Paladino, a real estate developer and a political novice, might morph into a more traditional candidate for the general election. If anything, its aggressive personal attack on Mr. Cuomo, the state’s attorney general, suggested that he had been emboldened by his primary triumph.
“What I find most offensive,” Mr. Paladino wrote, referring to his call for a debate, “other than the arrogance toward the public by your lack of a public answer, is the idea that this is somehow your decision. You have some sense of entitlement based on being the son of Mario Cuomo, a governor who left our state economy in a wreck.”
This Paladino guy is throwing haymakers from the jump, eh?
