Paladino beats Lazio for Republican nomination

By ANDREW DONOVAN

NEW YORK (WKTV/AP) - Political novice and tea party ally Carl
Paladino has upset the Republican designee in the race for the
party's nomination for New York governor.

Paladino rode a wave of voter anger on his way to defeating former Congressman Rick Lazio. It's another blow to the GOP in a heavily Democratic state.

Paladino, a millionaire Buffalo developer, will now take on the popular and well-financed Democratic attorney general, Andrew Cuomo, in November.

Paladino lost to Lazio at the state GOP convention but then petitioned his way to the primary by securing 30,000 Republican signatures statewide.
