Rapper LL Cool J has come out and endorsed New York Republican George Pataki for governor. This will be the first time he has voted in an election. Said LL Cool J:
Cool J was asked why he was supporting Pataki instead of McCall, who is the first black major-party candidate for governor in New York state.
"It’s not about parties, it’s not about race, it’s not about what’s cool or not cool, it’s about action and it’s about people stepping up," he said.
