NY Republicans embrace party-switcher for governor

There's been yet another twist in the saga of the New York governor's race.

Democrat Steven Levy, county executive in New York City suburb Suffolk, said Friday he has switched parties and will run as a Republican.

The single most important thing the people of New York want to hear in the race this year is not 'what party do you belong to.' They want to hear 'what is your plan to rescue our state?' Levy said, according to a statement.
