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.
