Paladino to make TV address in governor's race

By the Associated Press

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Republican Carl Paladino is buying three minutes of airtime on TV stations statewide as a poll show his support fading in the race for governor against Democrat Andrew Cuomo.

The TV address is planned to begin after 5 p.m. Thursday. Paladino's campaign says there will be a major announcement, but won't divulge the content.

A Quinnipiac University poll of likely voters released Thursday shows Paladino 18 points behind Cuomo. In its Sept. 22 poll, Paladino had drawn to within six points of Cuomo after his shocking landslide win in the Republican primary a week before.

The poll suggests Paladino's "angry man" style isn't winning over some voters. Less than a third of likely voters think Paladino is right for the job and more than half say he doesn't have the right personality to be governor.
