Report: NY Republicans Trying to Convince Donald Trump to Run For Governor

Sources tell the Daily News that a contingent of New York Republicans plan to travel to the city today to make a gubernatorial pitch to Donald Trump.

A group of Republican state legislators and political operatives is scheduled to meet with Donald Trump on Wednesday in an effort to convince him to run for governor, the Daily News has learned.

The contingent will travel to Trump’s New York City office for what they recognize is a long-shot plea, said one of the Republicans making the trek, Assemblyman David DiPietro.

“As Republicans we need to cast a pretty wide net and find the best candidate to beat Gov. Cuomo, and we think that Mr. Trump can beat Mr. Cuomo,” said DiPietro, who represents a district south of Buffalo.

The Donald has repeatedly toyed with running for governor and President over the years, public flirtations that have given him enormous publicity and burnished the Trump brand.

While Trump would provide Republicans with name recognition in a candidate that they wouldn’t otherwise have, he would also further damage any brand-building for other candidates if he were to use a candidacy to simply further his own publicity, only to then drop out as he is known to do.

Other potential candidates such as Rob Astorino would have difficulty getting their message out if the media were solely obsessed with Trump’s antics.

Despite the pitch, Trump has repeatedly denied any interest in running against Cuomo for governor.
