NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino launched a statewide campaign tour Thursday, a day after announcing his intent to unseat Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
The Republican stood on the steps of the Bronx courthouse and criticized Cuomo’s leadership. He did the same after flying across the state for an event in Buffalo with U.S. Rep. Chris Collins.
On Wednesday, Astorino announced his plan to run for governor in a video posted on his website, saying the idea that things are great in New York is a “fairy tale.”
