ALBANY—Paterson says we should just clone Chuck.
With Schumer standing by his side, Paterson—unprompted– proposed naming him to the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Hillary Clinton.
"He doesn't need another office, he doesn't need any additional staffing, he does the work of two, let Charles do it," Paterson said, before introducing him as "New York's first and second senator" to laughs.
"David, I thought you were my friend," Schumer replied. "We have enough to do; we do need another senator."
