George Pataki “Effectively Out”

At least according to The Right’s Field:

He didn’t directly take himself out of presidential contention, but former New York Gov. George Pataki told key Granite State Republicans last night he won’t object if they want to closely examine and endorse other candidates.

I honestly have to say, good riddance. We need a Pataki candidacy like we need a Joe Biden candidacy. Being from New York, I am well aware of Pataki’s weak socially-liberal agenda and lack of ability to fight unions and the like. Giuliani may be a social liberal but he does beat Hillary in national polls. Where’s Pataki? Last or next to last.

I’ll be shedding no tears.
