Molinaro Announces for Governor

Last Updated by Matt Ryan on

The early GOP favorite to take on Andrew Cuomo this November made it official today: He's running.  

In his tiny hometown of Tivoli, Dutchess County Executive Marc Molinaro announced he was a candidate for governor.  Packed into a steamy 3rd floor village hall room, Molinaro gave his biography and made the case why the state needs a change.  He criticized Cuomo's economic policies and the "tone" coming from the 2nd Floor of the Capitol. 

After his campaign kickoff in Albany, Molinaro told reporters why he didn't vote for Republican Donald Trump in 2016.  He ended up writing in the name of former Hudson Valley Rep. Chris Gibson, a fellow member of the GOP.

We'll have more reaction from Molinaro's two events plus analysis on this weekend's program.
