Now It’s Just Cuomo vs. Paladino


Carl Paladino’s mad-as-hell bid just got a bit easier: Rick Lazio had won the Conservative Party nomination but lost the GOP nomination to Paladino. Now word is Lazio is ending his bid entirely.

This will prevent the anti-Cuomo vote from being split between two candidates. Paladino still faces a steep uphill climb, but that climb looks a little easier today.

UPDATE: A New York reader says that now, barring some sudden new development, Paladino will be the nominee of the Conservative Party as well.
