Gov. David Paterson is out of the race for governor; Andrew Cuomo is not in the race for governor—yet; Rick Lazio is running—and maybe so is Suffolk County Executive Steve Levy.
Levy put out a statement to let people know that he’s not out of this yet. In fact, with Paterson out of a potential primary, Levy might just get in. The Democrat also tried to lure Republican support. After he has $4 million in the bank—$1 million more than Paterson had.
“These recent events add to what is the most dysfunctional state in the union. People want a revolution in Albany and I’m very close to leading that charge,” Levy said in a statement, calling himself a “prospective 2010 NY State Gubernatorial candidate.”
“We must remain focused on the fact that New York State is on the verge of bankruptcy and desperately needs a proven leader with the specific remedies that I’ve laid out in my Plan to Rescue New York.”
