Paterson Press Conference: Watch Live Online

Governor David Paterson is set to hold a press conference to discuss his political future.

The governor is said to be bowing out of the 2010 gubernatorial race, leaving a clear path for front-runner and probable candidate Andrew Cuomo.

Paterson has not been able to shake the scent of scandal since early February when reports of a "bombshell" story began to surface.

More recently it was revealed that the governor may have tampered with a witness in a domestic violence case involving one of his top aides. The governor's actions and those of some state troopers have been called into question.
