pataki-lazioFormer Gov. George Pataki, perhaps the most popular Republican in New York, is endorsing Rick Lazio in his GOP bid for governor this year. Pataki is scheduled to make the endorsement this afternoon in Manhattan.

Lazio is a former congressman from Long Island who has collected endorsements from most Republican county chairmen and many Conservative Party leaders around the state.

Lazio spokesman Barney Keller says Pataki’s backing is another indication Lazio has support to, as he put it, sweep clean the dysfunction in Albany.

Pataki, who retired as governor four years ago, is considering a run for the U.S. Senate seat held by Democratic Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand. The polls show Pataki has strong support statewide for a return to politics.
