He was originally recruited and then declined to run saying he prefers the private sector.

I think the NRSC is lacking any credible opponent whatsoever, so they asked Pataki just to have his name in the mix so the NRSC can claim to their donors that they're potentially challenging more seats than they are...my same theory as with Hoeven

however that was also my theory with Castle and I ended up with egg on my face

Of course the NRSC has had great successes thus far, but that doesn't mean that they don't want to exaggerate their future potential as much as possible.

What would really be interesting is if the GOP somehow put up Mayor Bloomberg for a state-wide race.

After the Hoffman incident?  Not likely.  

The NYC GOP lets Bloomberg run on their ticket when they have no chance anyway since it helps them keep the Democrats out and Bloomberg *happens* to always give their party a lot of money afterwards, kind of funny how that works
