Rob Astorino Announces Candidacy for New York State Governor

- Less than a week after visiting Binghamton, Republican Rob Astorino has officially announced his candidacy for New York State Governor. Astorino is the second term Westchester County Executive.

In his announcement today, he criticized Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo for high taxes, corruption and the worst business climate in the country. He says he has the background to put New York "back in the winning column."

He's also a strong supporter of fracking the Marcellus Shale.

Astorino says he's proven he can overcome the large deficit Republicans face in statewide registration by having won in Westchester where Democrats also hold a large edge.
