New York Gov. David Paterson apparently doesn't care much for GOP gubernatorial designee Carl Paladino.
Paterson told the Associated Press this morning that the tea party backed Paladino "isn't fit for public service."
Paladino will face Democrat Andrew Cuomo in November following his stunning upset of Rick Lazio in Tuesday's primary.
Here's more from the AP:
Paterson, a Democrat, said he understood Paladino's anger at the excesses of state government. But he said Paladino "insists on being divisive" and needs to tone down his rhetoric.
Paterson said he was deeply offended by the racist and pornographic emails Paladino has admitted forwarding to friends.
