Paterson Campaign Manager: ‘Frontrunners Can Falter’

In response to Stuart Appelbaum’s letter, David Paterson’s campaign manager is arguing that “frontrunners can falter” and that voters “want leaders to be straightforward” and “open about their intentions.”

The frontrunner in New York, whose intentions seem to be called into question here, is Andrew Cuomo.

Here’s campaign manager Richie Fife:

“Yesterday’s outcome in Massachusetts reminds us how fast frontrunners can falter and that there is nothing inevitable in politics.  Voters want leaders to be straightforward with them, open about their intentions and plans, and to be assured that they are working in their best interest.  That’s exactly what Governor Paterson is doing and why his poll numbers continue to improve.”
