Really, when you think about, what newspaper publisher is going to back Carl Paladino for governor ?.....Even his hometown Buffalo News scorned the favorite son.
First of all publishers like to be thought well of in political and professional circles and Paladino's gruff style isn't for the dainty crowd....And besides, no matter how much you like Paladino's rage against the machine and his proposals for real cuts, there is the lingering feeling that his lack of skill and knowledge would end up making Eliot Spitzer look like an effective governor.
Endorsing Cuomo will be an automatic for all newspapers in the state...
And the publishers and the cities they serve remember what the pols know...Andrew keeps score.
WNY Newspapers Go With Cuomo
