George Pataki 2016: 10 Noteworthy Tweets About GOP Presidential Hopeful

By    |   Tuesday, 26 May 2015 03:49 PM

There may soon be yet another contender in the Republican primary for the 2016 presidential election. George Pataki, who served as governor of New York from 1995 through 2006, hinted at a possible run shortly after Mitt Romney announced that he would not be seeking election, and he is expected to announce his candidacy later this week.

While Pataki was a popular fiscal conservative as governor, his liberal social positions make him an unlikely candidate, at least as far as the mainstream Republican Party is concerned. Pundits also point to low name recognition and too long a time out of office as major hurdles. Nonetheless, the Twitterverse wasted no time responding, and there was plenty to say:
  1. "The infinitely expandable 2016 Guardians of Peace clown car gets a little bigger." #Pataki  Tweeted by @DavidBenAmber January 13, 2015
  2. "Pataki criticizes former members of congress who become lobbyists. He urges outright prohibition." Tweeted by @jjk607 Febuary 3, 2016
  3. "#Pataki's talking about ISIS, ISIS, ISIS. GOP candidates can't just scare. @GovernorPataki needs paint vision to break out of single digits." Tweeted by @ProfPlotch February 16, 2015
