New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo beat his Republican rival on Tuesday, Buffalo businessman Carl Paladino, to become New York's next governor, the AP reported.
Cuomo was considered a shoo-in, and the picture became even rosier when Paladino was forced to apologize for an anti-gay attack.
Paladino's remarks came in a speech to Orthodox Jewish leaders. In contrasting his views on gay marriage to those of his opponent, Paladino said his opposition to the institution stems from not wanting children “brainwashed into thinking that homosexuality” is acceptable.
