Suozzi Running as a Republican?

From The New York Sun:

ALBANY – The latest speculation here is that Governor Pataki has asked Nassau County executive Thomas Suozzi, a Democrat, to run for governor on the Republican line and has offered to help him raise money. The governor’s office has been getting calls on it for days and has been telling reporters that it’s not true.

Have at it, boys and girls.
