.Just Breaking; and seems to be complete surprise; Caroline withdraws her name from consideration for Senate bid, citing “personal reasons.

NY POST

Caro line Kennedy has told Gov. David Paterson that she is withdrawing her name from consideration to replace outgoing Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton in the U.S. Senate, The Post has learned.

Kennedy cited “persoal reasons,” according to sources.

Her stunning move comes as sources revealed that Paterson had intended to appoint her to the now-vacant seat today.

The 51-year-old Camelot daughter’s decision removes the highest-profile name in the ring to step into Clinton’s seat, as she departs after getting confirmed as President Obama’s Secretary of State today.

The surprise decision leaves a crowded field of about 15 people, mostly elected officials, vying to replace Clinton – including Long Island Rep. Steve Israel, Nassau County Executive Tom Suozzi, upstate Rep. Kirsten Gillibrand and Rep. Carolyn Maloney.

For the first time on Tuesday, shortly after Obama was inaugurated, Paterson acknowledged publicly that he is considering state Attorney General Andrew Cuomo for the slot.

  1. I agree “fsteele”
    This was/is a community effort.
    BTW:
    I believe Chelsea lives in Maloney’s district.
    Just – a – Thought

  2. Everyone who talked about 17% helped — because Paterson quoted that.

    Now, if Maloney or Gillibrand gets promoted — who gets the vacant Congressional chair? Randi Weingarten?

    Maybe we should get started on that!

  3. I’m not stopping!!
    Check your e-mail for a way we can celebrate?

  4. Yes, you do deserve a shout out. You’ve worked hard and chose to persevere. This is a very BIG win for you today. And realize, ANYONE is better than Caroline.

    No need to hold your breath tpt/ny. Paterson is polling everyone because he can choose a woman now besides Caroline.

    This is the time to push Carolyn Maloney! Paterson has been revitalized. He has a chance to be a hero and give New Yorkers what they want and need!

  5. It was not necessary to give us the “shout-out”.
    Right now I’m “Really Holding My Breath”!!
    Someone just said on another site that Paterson committed to a “Woman” to be named.
    I know when I called his office & Rangel’s today; their reps asked me “A lot” of follow-up questions as to “Why” I felt the way I did.
