Trump due in Buffalo for GOP fundraiser
Depew, N.Y. (AP) -- Real estate mogul and reality TV star Donald Trump is expected at a Buffalo-area fundraiser as he considers a run for the New York governor's office.
Trump is to be the featured guest at an Erie County Republican Committee event on Friday.
Trump has met with Republican leaders about a possible challenge to Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo. But he has said he'll only run if the state's Republican Party rallies behind him and he faces no challengers for the nomination.
In an interview with a Buffalo radio station Thursday, Trump said hes the only person in New York state capable of beating Cuomo in Novembers election because he has both the financial means and name recognition.
Rob Astorino, an official in suburban Westchester County, is also considering running.
