ALBANY — Buffalo businessman Carl Paladino said he will not continue to run for governor on a new third-party line if he does not win September’s Republican Party primary against Rick Lazio.
The claim by Paladino, made in a NY1 television interview today, appears to call into question the push for the new party Paladino is trying to create.
“If we don’t win the Republican primary, we’re going to be gone at that point, because we’re not going to be a spoiler to someone running against Andrew Cuomo and taking him down,” Paladino said.
