On March 12, 2008, New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer - a Democrat - resigned his post after being implicated in a prostitution ring the previous day. Spitzer's resignation pushed Lt. Gov. David Paterson into the spotlight, making him the state's first African American governor. Since 2000, Paterson has received more than $2.5 million in campaign contributions.
