Buffalo real estate developer Carl P. Paladino makes another appearance on Fox Business Network this evening, discussing his possible entry into the 2014 gubernatorial race and pronouncing Democratic incumbent Andrew M. Cuomo "vulnerable."
“I’m more into the philosophy of the party and re-establishing and coming out with a party that is responsive to the people," he says in remarks made available by Fox Business Network. "Cuomo went out there and he made his own mistake with the SAFE Act. He should never have done that, people are upset.
"He made a big mistake in upstate New York economically with the fracking. I think he’s very vulnerable.”
Paladino has threatened to run on the Conservative line if the New York GOP fails to field a candidate he considers well known, well funded and conservative in philosophy.
“If [Conservative Party Chairman] Mike Long will give me the banner and that’s only if a good candidate doesn’t pop up,” he said.
Paladino was slated to make his second appearance on Fox in the last several months, which is scheduled for 8 tonight.
