Dutchess County Executive Marc Molinaro is getting a major boost with the unanimous backing of the Conservative Party Executive Committee in his run for Governor of New York.
The Executive Committee is recommending that party members vote for Molinaro over state Senate Deputy Majority Leader John DeFrancisco at the nominating convention in May.
Conservative Party Chairman Mike Long said, "Marc Molinaro will make New York more affordable and end Andrew Cuomo's culture of corruption - he has the record, the message and the integrity to get our state back on track."
Molinaro is also seeking the Republican nomination for Governor. Republicans will hold a nominating convention next month. DeFrancisco and Joseph Holland, former Governor Pataki’s first Housing Commissioner, are also vying for the Republican nomination.
