Dear God, Say It Isn't So: GOP Considers Pataki for New York Senate Run

Please, can't we find some fresh blood? George Pataki was a weak, ineffectual governor and left the New York GOP in shambles when he left office. He was even deluded enough to flirt with a presidential run but got the message when his name was usually coming up with zeros after it in early polling a couple of years ago.

Granted, considering the sorry state of the Republicans in New York, he might actually be a viable option. But really, do we need any more RINOs?
A person who spoke to George Pataki says national Republicans have approached the former New York governor about running for the U.S. Senate in 2010.

The person confirmed Tuesday's meeting in New York City between Pataki and Sen. John Cornyn, a Texas Republican who heads the party's national senate campaign committee. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because he isn't authorized to comment.

The person says Pataki, now in private law practice, hasn't yet accepted or rejected the idea. The race would be against Kirsten Gillibrand, who was appointed to succeed Hillary Rodham Clinton.
