ALBANY, N.Y. (WIVB) — Donald Trump has earned another endorsement from a top New York official.

New York Republican Party Chairman Ed Cox has pledged his support for Trump in the 2016 Presidential election.

Buffalo businessman Carl Paladino made the announcement on Thursday.

“In the wake of Donald Trump’s complete domination of the recent New York primary, I welcome New York Republican Party Chairman Ed Cox aboard the Trump train,” said Paladino. “I look forward to working with Ed in the weeks ahead to assure our state’s delegation stands equally as strong for Donald Trump as our voters did on Tuesday.

Donald Trump easily won New York during this week’s primary, where he faced competition from Ted Cruz and John Kasich.
