Former New York Gov. George Pataki (R) is likely to run for president, Bloomberg reports.

There’s little home-state support for a presidential run for former Gov. George Pataki and current Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a Quinnipiac University poll today said.


On the Republican side in New York, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker had 13 percent each, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie at 12 percent, U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida at 10 percent and U.S. Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky at 8 percent.

Pataki, who has said he’s contemplating a run and is traveling the country for a potential bid, got 6 percent in the poll. He was the Republican governor from 1995 through 2006.

The is not a single republican who holds state wide office in New York State. We have a chronic wannabee in the statehouse, Andrew “Mario, Jr.” Cuomo, a weasel for our senior senator, Charles Schumer, and a man hating bitch for junior senator, Kristen Gillebrand.

Pataki has been out of office for nine years.  He had plenty to time to remove on these rats from state wide office, and was either unwilling or unable to do so.  Pataki has shown he can’t get the job done in New York.  He sure isn’t going to get chance to so impotent in Washington.
