Dutchess County Executive Marc Molinaro returned to the spot where his political career began to make his announcement that he is seeking the Republican nomination for Governor. In front of friends, family and other supporters Molinaro made his announcement this morning at Tivoli Village Hall.
A large crowd helped him kick his campaign off this morning in Tivoli, where he was elected the country's youngest mayor in 1995. The Republican called for change in Albany, saying people have lost faith in their government. The 42-year-old Molinaro also had another campaign event in Albany this afternoon.
Syracuse State Senator John DeFrancisco and lawyer Joe Holland are also seeking the Republican nomination. A primary is set for September ahead of the November 6th election. On the Democratic side, actress and activist Cynthia Nixon is challenging Governor Andrew Cuomo.
