Rick Lazio Running for Governor Next Year?


Rick Lazio spokesman Kevin Fullington has been giving us video lessons for the past couple of days about the size of the state’s deficit, tossing a $40 billion number around to scare and befuddle.

One number he definitely didn’t get right, even as he stood before a chalkboard, is the year his candidate might get elected governor.

Blasting every Democrat for last week’s budget, Fullington declared: “They have forestalled any tough decisions and made Rick Lazio’s life more difficult when he’s elected governor next year.”

Maybe that’s when Rick and Kevin plan to start the campaign — 2011
