Paterson will not seek re-election

Recommended Posts



David Paterson, who became governor of New York when his predecessor was forced to resign in disgrace, announced on Friday that he will not seek election this year, driven from office by a scandal involving a top aide.

Paterson, whose almost two years in office were a whirlwind of crisis, said he will stay in office until his term legally ends, but he won't seek election to the office. He also defended his tenure in a televised news conference and pledged to continue working on the state's problems.
