Cuomo has outlined his ideas to lower taxes and energy costs for businesses in the form of a book, his campaign's third. He announced its release at Synacor Inc., a web portal provider, before heading to a Syracuse industrial facility to promote it there.
The visit on Tuesday came a day after Conservative Party candidate Rick Lazio dropped out of the race, boosting Paladino's chances in a contest some were viewing as a Cuomo walkover.
Paladino, a Buffalo developer and tea party Republican, is campaigning in New York City. The Paladino campaign calls Cuomo's job creation plan "empty promises.''
