Paladino For Di Carlo


Carl Paladino, the failed 2010 Republican gubernatorial candidate, endorsed Neil Di Carlo today in his GOP primary bid against Sen. Stephen Saland, R-Poughkeepsie.

Paladino said in a news release that Saland “has been in office for 32 years while our state has continued to slide into the abyss. He is not part of the solution. He is part of the problem. He is a RHINO Republican who, during the past year, was complicit with Cuomo and Silver in deceiving the people with a contrived $10 billion budget deficit and a tax reform bill that was in fact a tax-increase bill.”

Like Paladino, Di Carlo is a conservative Republican, and both oppose abortion and same-sex marriage. Saland was one of four Republican senators to vote in favor of same-sex marriage last year.

Paladino doesn’t mention the same-sex marriage vote specifically, but said Di Carlo shares the values of the district and is a businessman “with an unwavering commitment to conservative Republican values.”

Paladino, the Buffalo businessman who lost to Cuomo during a troubled campaign, has vowed to back candidates this year for state Legislature and overthrow the Senate GOP leadership.

Whether he’ll be successful with Di Carlo is unclear. The Dutchess County GOP said last week it plans to back Saland, but that was before Di Carlo jumped into the race. Di Carlo lives in Brewster, Putnam County, which is just outside Saland’s potential new Senate district.

    This bozo’s endorsement in a hindrance. He should just write a whopping anonymous check and go back to his crossword puzzles.

  2. Bobby Hamilton on

    and…who really cares what this nut thinks?

    I would not vote for anyone that Paladino’s endorses.

  3. Carl's a Homophobe on

    So, we’re supposed to believe that the guy who said such hateful things about Gays in the 2010 Governor’s race is only targeting the pro-Gay marriage Republicans because of their fiscal policy? RIGHT.

    If fiscal policy was so important to Paladino, he’s got a target rich environment in the GOP Senate. But it’s not, and we all know it. He’s only targeting the pro-Gay Marriage Senators – because he’s a HOMOPHOBE.

    Sorry, Paladino. If you think we believe your transparent ruse you are more stupid than everybody thinks you are. And THAT’s pretty darn stupid.

  4. Are we talking about Iraq? I can’t understand that these type of people in America are doing the same thing under the Suitable Laws that they made as political parties centered “Elections Laws in NYS” as Saddam Hussians and Kadafis Overseas!

    Very Shameless!
