The Tea Party movement has been a rampant force, and it's one that threatens to undermine the Democratic majority in the federal government.
Now, Andrew Cuomo seems to be the perfect choice for New York governor. His dad was the former governor, and it's a point that Carl Paladino - a Democrat turned Republican - likes to point out.
However, face it - New York hasn't had good luck with Democratic governors. Spitzer stepped down when he was involved in a prostitution ring, and now Governor Paterson is embroiled in scandal.
Still yet, Paladino is a little unorthodox. Can someone as radically conservative as he is rally win the New York governor's race? (Click here to watch a video on some of his views) I guess we will find out the answer to that on November 2nd.
