New York Governor David Paterson will return to his hometown of Hempstead next weekend to officially launch his campaign for his first full term. Governor Paterson will formally enter the race from the campus of Hofstra University on Saturday. Paterson is a graduate of Hofstra Law, but he also attended grade school in Hempstead. Paterson will barnstorm the state and hold similar events in Rochester and Buffalo. He will also attend a campaign rally at his adult home in Harlem next Sunday. Governor Paterson is seeking his first term in office after succeeding Eliot Spitzer, who resigned in disgrace after getting caught patronizing in a high-price call girl ring.
