Not everyone is going to like gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino.
In fact, a lot of people are going to really dislike the conservative Buffalo businessman.
Earlier this week, a western New York-based political website released emails forwarded by Paladino that contained racist material and bestiality. Some are calling it "politically incorrect" -- I call it really bad PR when you're planning a run for governor.
Paladino has pledged to run as a third party candidate, possibly representing the Tea Party line. Tea Party leaders are already tying to distance themselves from Paladino.
Then there's this from the Associated Press:
"Republican leaders say they've withdrawn their invitation to the Buffalo businessman to attend Friday's regional forum for statewide candidates. GOP officials said in a statement Tuesday that there was 'no chance' Paladino would receive the group's endorsement."
So here's my question: if Paladino is losing support from the GOP and from the Tea Party activists he claims to represent, what's the point of continuing his candidacy?
