The gubernatorial campaign of Republican Carl Paladino is inching further east.
Paladino netted the endorsement of the Chemung County Republican Party. It is the third county to go to Paladino, a Buffalo real estate developer, in August. Granted, Chemung County was never too hot on Paladino’s challenger, former Rep. Rick Lazio. Chemung GOP leaders originally endorsed Suffolk County Executive Steve Levy in March. Levy, a Democrat-turned-Republican, dropped out of race after the state party designated Lazio its preferred candidate.
Recently, Paladino has been able to garner the support of Genesee County and Cayuga County.
