Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino has more than $1.3 million in cash-on-hand after raising $626,754 over the last six months.

The Republican, widely viewed as a potential statewide candidate one day, still must run for re-election in the Democratic-heavy northern suburbs of New York City in 2013.

He could face one of a number of Democrats with county-wide name recognition who are also prodigious fundraisers: Assemblywoman Amy Paulin, County Board of Legislators Chairman Ken Jenkins and even former Attorney General candidate Sean Coffey.

Astorino has in recent months been one of the few politicians in elected office to challenge the Cuomo administration directly. He pushed for a postponing of a vote on the building of a replacement of the Tappan Zee Bridge in order to receive more information on the project.
