From Fox News:

New York Gov. David Paterson will name Rep. Kirsten Gillibrand, an upstate Democrat, to replace Hillary Clinton in the U.S. Senate, a Democratic official with knowledge of the governor’s decision told FOX News on Thursday night.

_But some New York City Democrats are skeptical of Gillibrand, who voted against the financial rescue package last fall. And the National Rifle Association has endorsed Gillibrand — another cause for concern among some Democrats. . . .

In defense of the endorsement, Gillibrand told FOX News that she comes from a “hunting family” and “wants to support hunter’s rights.”

What do you think of Patterson’s choice?
