WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino still hasn't made a firm decision about running for Governor this year, but made a strong indication that he would during a radio interview on Wednesday, Jan. 14, according to the Democrat and Chronicle. 

During the interview, Astorino divulged that he is "leaning toward" challenging Gov. Andrew Cuomo. This marks a change from last week, when the county executive claimed he was "50/50" on a gubernatorial run, the Democrat and Chronicle reported.

I wouldn't feel betrayed if Astorino decided to run against Cumo after having just been re-elected in Westchester. I would question his judgment, thought as this is a race he will not win. Cuomo's better than his predecessors, is still making a mess of things, but Astorino doesn't stand a chance. Does he really have to make the Republican power structure feel better about itself by being their sacrificial lamb in 2014? Rob, "just say 'No'".


Don't lean to far Rob you might fall over. Looks like the Donald may want to Trump you Rob. Remember Andy O'Rourke & Pierre Rinfret


Astorino should be leaning toward running Westchester County.
Don't you feel betrayed if you voted for him?
