Pataki running for the US Senate is similar to Ronnie Musgrove's failed US Senate run against Roger Wicker- in the race to replace Chester Trent Lott.

Had Pataki decided to run for re-election in 2006 against Elliot Spitzer- He would have lost re-election- Pataki did not recieve more than 50% of the popular vote against any of his Democratic opponents. Mario Cuomo was pretty unpopular in 1994. Vallone-1998 and McCall-2002- were weak candidates. Gillibrand is a much stronger opponent than Mario Cuomo was in 1994. and Vallone and McCall.

Pataki won re-election in 1998 against Peter Vallone with less than 55% of the popular vote against Vallone-who was then a NYC Council Speaker. Most Republican Governors facing re-election were re-elected with more than 55% of the popular vote.
John Rowland (CT),John Engler(MI),Tom Ridge(PA),and Tommy Thompson(WI).
