NEW YORK (AP)Two senior New York Democratic advisers say top national party leaders have asked Gov. David Paterson to consider withdrawing from the 2010 governor’s race.

The New York Times also reported that President Barack Obama requested that Paterson withdraw.

The advisers spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to speak for Paterson.

One of the advisers says that party leaders in Washington were concerned about Paterson’s political weakness, believing his office is too important to risk losing. The Democratic source is unsure what the response will be.

White House officials had no immediate comment.
