A Republican Hope in New York
Tom Golisano is out, Rudy Giuliani may be out too, so who are Republicans going to run for governor of New York next year? The ...
NEW YORK Republicans are eyeing a dynamic but little- known upstate businessman and elected official to run for governor next year if Rudy Giuliani declines, The Post has learned.
GOP leaders say Erie County Executive Chris Collins, a wealthy, charismatic, conservative-oriented entrepreneur and government reformer is interested.
Collins, who won a surprising landslide victory in the heavily Democratic county in 2007, would make a great candidate, they say.
President Obama received 58% of the vote in Erie County in November. The county is home to more than 900,000 people. So, this would be a pretty good base of support for a Republican running statewide.
