An Upstate Candidate for Gov?

The Governor's race so far looks like Cuomo vs Lazio, which does not bode well for Upstate. Cuomo could be expected to govern like his father, which was a total disaster for us . . . and Lazio seemed not to even know where Upstate NY was when he ran against Hillary for US Senate.

But from the Post Standard we hear about a new candidate -- from Buffalo: Paladino, running for governor, denounces 'ruling class' on visit to Syracuse.
Carl Paladino brought his campaign for governor to Syracuse Wednesday, denouncing a “despicable ruling class of people who have lost sight of the people they represent.” . . .

Paladino spared few state officials in his remarks, calling Gov. David Paterson “pathetic,” and referring to Attorney General Andrew Cuomo, a likely Democratic candidate for governor and son of former Gov. Mario Cuomo, “Prince Andrew.” He called state Republican Party Chairman Ed Cox, who has endorsed another candidate, “Mr. In the Box.”
Well, Mr. Paladino got our attention . . . but can he deliver?
