Paladino Beats Lazio

Well, I guess all bets are truly off this season.

Buffalo businessman Carl Paladino decisively beat former New York Congressman Rick Lazio in the New York Republican gubernatorial primary winning nearly two thirds of the vote. Paladino will face Attorney General Andrew Cuomo in November.

This is the biggest upset of the night. Even bigger than Christine O'Donnell's victory in Delaware. While O'Donnell wasn't favored to defeat Mike Castle she certainly made it a competitive race.

I don't think anyone outside of Tea Party activists in New York saw this one coming.
