NEW YORK (AP) — Jimmy McMillan says he can’t quit now — the rent is still “too damn high.”

The man who became the breakout star of New York’s race for governor said Wednesday that he got so much support, he has to keep going.

The 63-year-old McMillan became a sensation after a debate in which he repeated his point about New York’s price of living: “The rent is too. Damn. High.”

He received almost 40,000 votes Tuesday in the race won by Democrat Andrew Cuomo. Cuomo won 2.5 million votes while GOP nominee, Carl Paladino won 1.4 million votes. McMillan came close to the Libertarian Party candidate, Warren Redlich, who won 45,000 votes and had twice as many votes as Freedom Party candidate, Charles Barron.

McMillan is a perennial fringe candidate who has run for governor, Senate and mayor. He has blamed rent prices in part on Jewish landlords and has given conflicting stories on how much he pays.

He says the mayoral race in a few years is a possibility. He says he’s been encouraged to run for president but won’t because he likes President Barack Obama.
