Trump Discusses Possible Campaign on WBEN
Buffalo, NY (WBEN) Donald Trump says he's formed an exploratory committee in a potential gubernatorial run. He says it's not a big deal, as are recent comments made by a possible primary opponent.
"I haven't read anything astronomical, he has to say something," says Trump, referring to comments made by Rob Astorino that Trump's mulling of a run is just a circus and he needs to make a decision soon. "I think he's a nice guy, but I don't think he can win," says Trump of Astorino. Trump says Astorino is executive of the county with the highest taxes in the state. "I don't have to worry about raising money, so that's a big advantage. If he wants to run he can," adds Trump.
Trump says if the GOP wants to unite and avoid a primary, he'll run. He has said a GOP primary will send the winner into the November race against Gov. Cuomo limping.
