Paladino plans challenge against GOP favorite Lazio

Outspoken Buffalo millionaire Carl Paladino is vowing to clean up Albany if he gets elected governor, but first he must get onto the Republican primary ballot and take on party nominee Rick Lazio.

Paladino is expected to try and boost his name recognition to secure enough signatures by July 15 to get on the primary ballot.

A Paladino advisor says the Hudson Valley is key to winning a potential primary election in September.
