Could this be the winning ticket?
Assembly Minority Leader Brian Kolb and Dutchess County Executive Marc Molinaro, are in discussions to form a Republican ticket to challenge Cuomo, in next year’s election.
Kolb and Molinaro revealed their potential plan during a joint interview with The Auburn Citizen Monday. Both men have spent the past few months kicking around the idea of running for governor. Both anticipate making a final decision on the 2018 race within the next month.
The state’s voter enrollment favors Democrats. A Republican hasn’t won a statewide race since then-Gov. George Pataki was re-elected in 2002.
