A GOP MOC from Carl Country has become the first Republican pol in NY to publicly back Donald Trump. Rep Chris Collins says he admires the strength of Mr. Trump
Western NY is the most rebel part of the state. Perot ran well there and western counties were the only naysayers in Governor Cuomo's landslide in 2010 over Carl Paladino.
I would not recommend backing Trump in NNY. The media mandarins would quickly be peering down their noses at you.
