NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) – Donald Trump appears to be eying another political run.

The wealthy real-estate developer is being recruited by some in the GOP to challenge incumbent Democrat Andrew Cuomo. He’s said he would consider running if state Republicans join together behind him.

Trump told The Buffalo News that he would commit $30 million to $50 million of his own money against Cuomo.

Trump is scheduled to head upstate to attend a Republican fundraiser at the end of the month.

The Erie County Republican Committee said Trump will be at its Lincoln Leadership Award event in Buffalo on Jan. 31.

In 2012, Trump had flirted with the idea of running for president, but in the end chose to stick with hosting “The Celebrity Apprentice” over a bid for the Republican nomination.

He has shown interest in the past in running for president, in both 1988 and 2000.
