Poughkeepsie, N.Y. - The Dutchess County Executive vying for the Republican nomination for Governor has seemingly secured the nomination from the grasp of CNY State Senator John DeFrancisco.
The Manhattan Republican Party is now endorsing Marc Molinaro. The endorsement means secures for Molinaro the majority of the weighted vote of the Republican State Committee.
This means that Molinaro is expected to win the party's May nominating convention and will take on Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo in November.
