New York - A meeting of Democratic leaders from more than a dozen upstate New York counties shows a continuing rift within the party over whether Gov. David Paterson should end his election bid.

No vote was taken in Saturday’s private meeting that excluded the state party’s leadership.

Rockland County Democratic Chairman Vincent Monte says there was overwhelming support at the meeting for Andrew Cuomo, the attorney general who hasn’t said whether he will run for governor.

He says Democratic county leaders will continue to discuss their concern with Paterson’s viability as a candidate without the state party’s leadership.

Though he didn’t attend the meeting, state Democratic Chairman Jay Jacobs says there was support voiced for Paterson, too. He says the process to choose the nominee continues.

I personally think that gov. paterson is really a good gov. his doing a good job and he is not to left and not to right he is really someone whe cares for new york . the midia is trying for long time to go after him and if the democrats will drop him and he will run too. lazio will be the next gov. and I think that even paterson will run the midia riped him of so he has no chance to win too so I think lazio is the winner here but for example we have a mayor who isn't caring for the people in the city he is only looking on the budget of the city he increased texas tickets water cut police fire he anded his terms and the midia was fully for him its unbelievable

I think that Coumo would be terrible for the Jews. he thinks doesn't need the Jewish vote to get in and will never stand up for us. In fact, he hasn't done a thing for the jewish community as AJ. Paterson may win, if the Jews abd Blacks stans behind him.
