From Elizabeth Benjamin:
Paterson a conciliatory stance when first asked about Ford's potential challenge to his hand-picked replacement for former Sen. Hillary Clinton, telling reporters:
“I think it is OK for anyone to challenge anybody in the primary this year. That’s what Democracy is about, and I still think that my feeling is enhanced about the service of Senator (Kirsten) Gillibrand over this year.”
When about Ford’s history of opposing abortion rights, however, Paterson changed his tune.
“You know I hadn’t really thought of that until you brought it up, so I would suggest he would look for another state to run a primary,” Paterson said.
