Paladino to Run on Republican Line

July 20, 2010 Updated Jul 20, 2010 at 1:49 PM EDT

BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) - Buffalo developer Carl Paladino has successfully petitioned his way onto the Republican ballot, assuring a Primary showdown with fellow Republican gubernatorial candidate Rick Lazio.

The Paladino campaign submitted over 28,000 signatures to the State Board of Elections, and the deadline to challenge those signatures was midnight Monday.

No challenges have been made, and Paladino will be on the September 14th ballot to challenge Rick Lazio to run on the Republican ticket against Democrat Andrew Cuomo in November.

We'll have full coverage tonight on Eyewitness News and WKBW.com, including an interview with Carl regarding his successful petition.
