Dutchess County Executive Will Not Run For Governor

Dutchess County Executive Marc Molinaro says he will not run for the Republican nomination for Governor of New York.  After for several months flirting with the possibility of launching a campaign, Molinaro yesterday tweeted that now is not the right time to run. 

“After much discussion, contemplation, and prayer, I have made the decision that at this time I will not be a Republican candidate for Governor.

While I believe that State government can be a servant of the people when run well and with integrity, it's just not the right time for me to seek the governorship.

I will focus on the important work we are accomplishing in Dutchess County, continue traveling the state advocating for those with disabilities, and my wife Corinne and I will continue raising our young family.” 

Molinaro is the second top Republican to decide against a run, Westchester Businessman Harry Wilson made the same decision earlier this week.
