BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - Republican Carl Paladino has won the endorsement of former governor George Pataki in the gubernatorial race as he rallies supporters in South Buffalo.
Monday was a busy day of campaigning for Carl Paladino. He made it to numerous rallies across WNY, and stopped at American Legion Post 721 in South Buffalo to meet with supporters. Monday night, Paladino will attend a major event in downtown Buffalo.
Paladino had this to say about Pataki's endorsement, "He's the kind of guy, he recognizes I'm human. I'm just like everybody else. I'm just a builder from Buffalo, that's all. And he recognizes that I'm human, and it was his idea. He said, "Yeah, OK. I'm going to do this." And that's wonderful, and we're really happy, and there is no time thing. An election is an election. And we're very happy about tomorrow. Tomorrow we will win."
In a Q&A, Paladino responded to questions.
Q: You still confidant about winning tomorrow?
A: "Absolutely. The people are going to speak tomorrow, Mylous. And they're going to speak very clear, and very loud. I've been all over this state. And you know, before the primary, I had that feeling, but I didn't know what it meant because I've never done this before. But now I know what it means."
Q: You spent a lot of time on Monday campaigning in WNY. Some people feel you should have spent more time downstate.
A: "I've been downstate for the past three weeks. And believe me, Long Island? They're all for us. Staten Island? They're all for us.
Q: Do you think you'll overcome the mistakes you've made in your campaign at the polls on Tuesday?
A: "I'm human and people know I'm human. And maybe that's the reality of me. My opponent's been hiding for three months. He's been hiding and won't answer any questions. Is that being real to the people? He won't answer for 'Obamacare.' He won't answer for the Medicaid mess that's out there. That's what's wrong with our state. We've got people who have been feeding at the public trough for so long. Andrew Cuomo is a poster child for everything that's wrong in our government today."
