ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - New York's Conservative Party has given its crucial nomination to tea party Republican Carl Paladino.
The Buffalo developer was interviewed by Conservative leaders before a public vote Wednesday afternoon. Paladino now has the united support of two parties against Democratic front-runner Andrew Cuomo.
Republicans running statewide have needed the Conservative line to attract disaffected Democrats and independents. Conservative Party nominee Rick Lazio withdrew from the race Monday. He lost the Republican nomination to Paladino in a primary two weeks ago.
The general election is November 2.
