COLONIE -- Buffalo businessman Carl Paladino told a state Conservative Party gathering today he believes billionaire Donald Trump is serious about running for governor.
"I feel very solidly we're going to hear good things from Donald Trump,'' Paladino told an audience of Conservative Party leaders at a hotel here outside Albany.
Trump said he had dinner with Trump last week. "I had one question: are you taking advantange of us or are you serious?'' Paladino said he asked Trump.
Paladino said Gov. Andrew Cuomo has been "sending out emmisaries" to try to convince Trump not to challenge him this fall. "I see good things coming,'' Paladino said of Trump.
