Paterson: Election for Gillibrand’s Seat This Spring

COLONIE—We’ll know the date of the special election for the 20th Congressional District tomorrow, David Paterson just said.

Republicans want the governor to call it as soon as possible.

Paterson said a formal proclamation will come 30-40 days before the actual election, which he said he wants to take place “in the spring, so we don’t have people voting in the bitter cold.”

As a reminder, the vernal equinox this year is March 20.

The candidates for the seat are Jim Tedisco and Scott Murphy.
