Here’s Tom Golisano, a registered Republican, being asked repeatedly by reporters in Albany yesterday if the goal of his new P.A.C. is to help Democrats take control of the State Senate, and answering repeatedly that the organization won’t be about partisanship.
“I want to see the senate turn in such a way that we start accomplishing these things,” he said, referring to his eight-point agenda. “I want the assembly to do the same thing.” Later, Golisano denied a report that he told Joe Bruno the new P.A.C. would not help Democrats take control of the senate.
