Astorino makes first campaign stop in western NY

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino has introduced himself in Buffalo, a day after formally entering the race for governor.

The Republican from New York City's northern suburbs says he's not intimidated by his lack of name recognition elsewhere in the state, noting the election is still nine months off.

And he says he's confident he'll collect the support of the county Republican leaders and be able to raise enough money to run a successful campaign.

Several New York Republican leaders have been trying to convince New York City real estate developer Donald Trump to challenge Democratic incumbent Andrew Cuomo.

But Astorino says just one day into his campaign, strangers are already starting to recognize him and wish him luck.

He has events scheduled in Rochester, Syracuse and Albany on Friday.
