Erie Co. Exec. Chris Collins appears to be moving forward with plans to announce he will seek the GOP nomination for Governor next year.
On the plus side, he’s not Rick Lazio. On the negative, he did join County Executives Against Illegal Guns, a MAIG offshoot created by Mayor Bloomberg and outgoing Westchester Co. Exec. Andrew Spano. To be fair, other than the initial press release by Bloomberg/Spano, I haven’t heard of this group actually doing anything and with Spano out of the picture it remains to be seen if they ever will.
