Buffalo, NY, August 24, 2010 — The Seneca County Republican Committee and Chairman Ken Padgett today announced their endorsement of Carl Paladino for Governor of New York. Seneca County is the latest of many county GOP groups defecting the Lazio camp while switching their support to Carl Paladino.
The Seneca County Republican Committee voted Monday night to endorse Paladino on the eve of a campaign event for the candidate in Seneca County on Tuesday.
"Republicans across New York are talking, and Carl's campaign is catching fire with many of my colleagues in Party leadership," Chairman Padgett said. "Carl is proposing new ideas to help solve our State's worst problems while his opponents duck the issues."
"Under Chairman Padgett, the Seneca GOP organization has delivered time and time again for candidates and I am deeply thankful, honored and humbled by the County Republicans' support today," Paladino said. "Seneca County is an important piece of the puzzle we are putting together as we drive toward victory in the Republican Primary."
Padgett joins several Republican county committee chairs endorsing Carl Paladino, including Mike Norris of Niagara County, Cherl Heary of Cayuga County, Richard Siebert of Genesee County, Ed Morgan of Orleans County, and Nick Langworthy of Erie County. Announcements of other GOP leadership endorsements are imminent.
Carl Paladino, a successful real estate developer and attorney, is a Republican candidate for Governor of New York. He and Tom Ognibene, candidate for Lieutenant Governor, petitioned their way into the Republican Primary and canvassed to create a new Taxpayers ballot line.
