Trump to stump in Syracuse


   By Robert J. McCarthy

   Just when you wondered if Donald J. Trump's absence from headlines in recent days served as any kind of signal about his political future, he is about ready to surface in Syracuse.

   The billionaire developer and potential candidate for governor will highlight a fundraising event for the Onondaga County Republican Committee on March 11 at the Doubletree Hotel.

   Onondaga County Republican Chairman Thomas V. Dadey Jr., who has been a major Trump supporter, said he remains optimistic that Trump will seek and accept the nomination of the Republican Party against Democratic incumbent Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo this year.

   The event is expected to draw big crowds in the same manner as Trump's Jan. 31 appearance before the Erie County GOP.

   “I am confident that Mr. Trump will draw a big crowd and provide excitement to the race for governor that has not been seen in years," Dadey said.
