Pataki joins 2016 race

Former New York Governor George Pataki joined the growing 2016 field today to announce he would seek the GOP nomination for President.

Pataki is a three-term governor who led New York through the terrorist attacks of September 11th.

"After 12 years of my conservative policies, we replaced dependency with opportunity, resignation with hope, mere existence with dreams, a welfare check with a paycheck," Pataki said, adding,  "I know we can do the same thing for the United States."

Bret sat down with Governor Pataki as part of Special Report's 2016 Contenders series--here are a few clips that didn't air where Pataki talks about reaching beyond the political base, his record as Governor of New York, his views on Common Core, his vision for America and more.
