Stefanik Backs Paladino
Some behind the scenes politics is going on in the congressional race for the new 23rd. Officials say that Congresswoman Elise Stefanik (R, Syracuse) is throwing her support behind Buffalo billionaire Carl Paladino. That means that elise Stefanik is going up against state GOP chairman Nick Langworthy, because Langworthy is circulating petitions to run in the new 23rd himself. There will likely be a primary between Nick Langworthy and Carl Paladino.
