Former candidate for New York Governor, Carl Paladino, said he plans to run for office again - unless the Republican Party can reshape itself.

"I'm telling the Republican Party that enough is enough - enough of the games, enough of the fantasy nonsense and enough using the republican rank and file," said Paladino.

Paladino believes the Republican Party no longer knows what they stand for. He claims that if they don't straighten their act out soon, Republicans will lose the race no matter what.

"But I learned about the Republican Party, when I ran for office and they're not nice people. The leadership has been terrible. And we've got to do something about that."

Paladino had a few things he'd like to see the GOP change.

"I want them to come up with a candidate who's not going to sell us out, who actually has values and who's going to do something about fracking, the SAFE Act and someone who will provide a government with values," said Paladino.

He even said that a moderate republican with name recognition and a massive campaign war chest would make a suitable choice. If the party doesn't adhere to Paladino's guidelines, he plans to ask the conservative party to back his endorsement.

Back in 2010, Paladino took 30-percent of the vote and won in every Western New York county, but he took defeat against Governor Andrew Cuomo.
