Paterson and Murphy: Happy Together, For Now

GLENS FALLS—During Scott Murphy’s successful bid for Congress, David Paterson limited his efforts on behalf of his fellow Democrat to phone calls behind the scenes and fund-raising efforts. He did not appear publicly with the candidate until election night, when polls closed with Murphy ahead narrowly.
After Assemblyman Jim Tedisco conceded the race on Friday, Paterson traveled to the shady park outside the Crandall Library to bask in the reflected glow of Murphy’s election.
And why shouldn’t he? The victory gives Paterson an ally in the Congressional delegation, who can, hypothetically, help the governor earn support and cement his reputation far from his New York City base.
