George Pataki, the last Republican governor of New York, was on the campaign trail in Glens Falls and Saratoga Springs Friday.

Pataki was supporting GOP candidates for the midterms.

“This is the closest race in 20 years. It’s because not just Republicans and independents, but Democrats understand that this state is headed in the wrong direction,” said Pataki. “If we don’t change direction, we’re just going to continue to see taxes go through the roof, inflation soar, crime be unacceptable and people leave the state.”
