Trump schedules another upstate NY stop


SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) — Real estate mogul and reality TV star Donald Trump has accepted another invitation from upstate New York Republicans who want to see him challenge Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

The Onondaga County Republican Committee said Monday that Trump will be in Syracuse for an event on March 11.

Trump has been talking about running for governor and appeared recently at a sold-out GOP event near Buffalo, but he hasn’t committed.

A potential Republican rival is Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino, who is expected to announce his decision on whether to run by the end of the month.

Polls have shown either would face an uphill race against Cuomo. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
