After a rough two weeks swatting down rumors about a potentially career-ending New York Times profile, Governor David Paterson is steering the focus back towards his career. During an appearance at Hofstra University today, Paterson said "After all you have heard, there's one rumor I will confirm: I am running for governor this year,” …"They haven't knocked us down yet, and they never will." The announcement was his first official bid in the New York governor’s race, and Attorney General Andrew Cuomo is expected to battle him in the primary race. Former Long Island congressman Rick Lazio has also declared his intention to run on the Republican ticket.
