(CNN) – New York Gov. David Paterson called Rep. Peter King Tuesday to inform the New York Republican of his plans to meet with leaders of a controversial Islamic center and mosque "to discuss plans to move to an alternate site" later this week, a spokesman for King tells CNN.
King's spokesman did not have any more details on the meeting, and did not know whether these leaders would be interested in relocating.
Paterson called King after the governor heard him on the John Gambling radio show Tuesday morning discussing a proposal that Paterson suggested last week for possibly finding another site. According to King's spokesman, the congressman said on the radio show that he thought Paterson's plans "made the most sense."
