Paladino: 'I think Christie's done'

  By Robert J. McCarthy

   Buffalo's Carl P. Paladino isn't wavering in his views on national Republican politics, telling the Fox Business Network in an interview slated for Monday evening that he continues to be impressed by the likes of Senators Marco Rubio of Florida and Ted Cruz of Texas.

   And what about Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey, embroiled in the current "Bridgegate" scandal?

   "I think Christie's done," he said in excerpts from the program made available by Fox late Monday.

   More Paladino observations include his thoughts on the Republican Party:

   "It does put a lot more credibility in the thought that a guy like  Cruz or Marco Rubio or one of those guys will be our candidate in 2016," he said. "I think the Republican establishment is becoming irrelevant real quick and in the next couple years we are going to see them move a lot faster towards irrelevancies and stepping aside."
