A running mate has emerged for the Republican vying for the Executive Mansion.
Marc Molinaro has chosen Julie Killian as his running mate for lieutenant governor. Killian is unknown to Upstate.
"Julie Killian is a champion for people who have no voice, who are left behind, who are in crisis and she will never back down from the challenges that are facing our state," saud Molinaro. "I'm proud to have Julie as my partner in this campaign to restore New Yorker's belief in the future of our state."
"Marc and I share a vision of New York, that is more affordable, accountable and accessible for all families and I am honored to join his team as a true partner," said Killian.
She was the deputy mayor of a small city in Westchester County and recently lost a special election for the State Senate.
Republicans will officially nominate Molinaro and Killian this week at their party's nominating convention.
