Pataki Unlikely for 2010 Senate Bid
Almost as quickly as the rumor started that former NYS Governor George Pataki was considered a possibility to challenge Kirsten Gillibrand, it now seems highly unlikely that he will take up the task. Cynics say the rumor was deliberately trumped up to drum up business for his law practice. What's more likely is that he is enjoying himself in the private sector and wants to make a few bucks.
Who can blame him? He's been a small town mayor, he served in the state legislature as both an assemblyman and senator for nine years, and he was governor of the state for twelve years. It could be said that he has done his bit for king and country.
