9/13/2010 – In a statement on Monday, Assemblyman Greg Ball (R, C, I – Patterson) endorsed Carl Paladino for Governor in the September 14 Republican Primary:
“Today, I am proudly throwing my support behind Carl Paladino. New York State cannot be nudged back on track. The train is heading in the exact wrong direction and on an imminent course with a brick wall of debt, corruption and government waste. Embracing the ‘Status Quomo’ will do nothing to drain the swamp of Albany, where all these insiders are friends and associates. In a heated primary of my own, hundreds of Republicans ask me everyday who I support for Governor. I am voting for Carl Paladino for Governor, and over the next two days I will be asking all of my supporters to do the same.”
Ball has previously endorsed Republicans Steve Katz for Assembly and Gary Berntsen for U.S. Senate in their Republican Primaries. Each candidate has also endorsed Ball in his race for State Senate.
