At a press conference in midtown this morning about his efforts to provide hurricane relief to Haiti, David Paterson was bombarded with questions about (what else?) who he’ll pick to fill Hillary Clinton’s Senate seat.
He went on to reiterate that he’s taking him time so that people who have expressed interest have “an opportunity to perhaps maybe come in and talk to me one-on-one.”
When I asked Paterson to elaborate on the timetable for meeting candidates one-on-one, he declined to do so.
The process he said, is “being treated as some sort of reality TV show. No, this is reality of life.”
