After a member of his administration called his actions “unacceptable” and resigned today, Governor David Paterson is finally considering quitting the race.
“I am not suspending my campaign, but I am talking to a number of elected officials around the state, as I would, fellow Democrats, to give their opinion,” the governor said in a brief press conference Thursday evening. He added: “I’ve got an open mind about this thing. I want the Democrats to win in November.”
