Comrie Doesn’t See Paterson’s Rationale

After being told of Stuart Appelbaum’s letter urging David Paterson out of the governor’s race, City Councilman Leroy Comrie said he’s not surprised.

“Paterson has not made a lot of friends in labor,” Comrie said, speaking to me after the mayor’s state of the city speech in Queens. He added that Paterson “is not creating a lot of opportunities.”

Comrie said the governor’s election plans don’t create a clear path to victory. “I don’t understand his strategy. What’s going to be his base statewide?” asked Comrie. “The angry voter?”
