Will Paterson Run in 2010?

What’s Governor David Paterson’s plan for New York State? A year into his governorship, no one is quite sure: “Mr. Paterson still seems adrift” reports The New York Times. Since November 12, when he called for accelerated action on the state budget, he’s spent a grand total of 14 days in Albany, and his recent stumbles—including his admission that he had instructed aides to challenge Caroline Kennedy’s account of why she withdrew from the Senate race and his bringing back of a former chief of staff who had resigned over a tax scandal—have some questioning whether he’ll even run for reelection in 2010.
