Pataki is considering a run for United States Senator.

Author's note - My personal GOP candidates for the 2010 electoral season, are here for all to see, one of which is the former Governor Pataki,

It is being reported by NewsMax, that the former Republican Governor of New York, George Pataki, is considering a run for United States Senator against Senator Gillibrand next year, not to mention Pataki also stated that Giuliani is also looking at a possible 2010 Gubernatorial run as well.

While I do not agree with Pataki on 100% of the issues, I would rather have a Senator I agree with 70% of the time, and who will actually bring some Republican and shades of Conservatism to the table, instead of a liberal hypocrite like Gillibrand, who Matt believes might have committed career suicide last week -
