Local republicans continue to endorse Trump

NORTH TONAWANDA, N.Y. (WIVB) — Across western New York, Republicans continue to endorse Donald Trump in his quest to take the White House in the upcoming presidential election.

Officials with the Niagara County Republican Committee announced on Tuesday they are coming out in favor of the Republican frontrunner, calling him New York’s “favorite son.”

Other local officials, including Tom Reed and Chris Collins, declared their support for the boisterous Republican as he gears up to storm New York State on April 19.

Two years ago when Donald Trump considered running for governor, he visited Buffalo, but didn’t receive the warmest welcome after he said Buffalo is a failing town.

“Buffalo is suffering badly, it’s failing, it’s not going to be here for very long, and Buffalo is really emblematic of what’s wrong with the state, and we can turn that around,” Trump said. “Buffalo can be a thriving place.”

When pressed on how he thought Buffalo could improve, he said, “Uh, energy, and lots of other things.”

New York will decide if Donald Trump should be the Republican candidate in just one month.
