New York, NY (WBEN) A local assemblyman spent lunchtime Wednesday with one of the world's most influential men, urging him to challenge Andrew Cuomo next year.
Dave DiPietro and another assemblyman were in New York visiting with Donald Trump. "A five minute turned into over two hours, and we gave him a lot to think about over the holidays with him and his family," says DiPietro. Why does he feel Trump is the right choice to run? "He's a true leader and true job creator. I think he'll turn the state around in six months, and New York State would truly be open for business under Mr. Trump."
DiPietro says he and his colleagues laid out what they thought and why Trump should run. "We asked him a few questions about his intentions, but we presented a case for why New York needs him," explains DiPietro, who characterized the discussion as great.
