Republican leaders will make another attempt Wednesday to convince real estate mogul Donald Trump to run for governor.  Erie County GOP Chairman Nick Langworthy wouldn’t describe the nature of the meeting but confirmed he will be among the “various county chairs” attending.

State Assemblyman David DiPietro, who will also be in Manhattan for the meeting, told Time Warner Cable News Buffalo the meeting is another step in the process for Trump.  It’s a process that saw Trump speaking before a sold out crowd of Western NY Republicans in Depew late last month.

DiPietro and State Assemblyman Bill Nojay hatched the “Draft Trump” movement this past summer during a dinner meeting.  Trump has said he would only run if the party unites, meaning Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino and State GOP Chairman Ed Cox would have to get behind him.

Astorino has not officially announced, but he recently formed an exploratory committee.  The top Republican in the State Senate said, Monday, Astorino will run for Governor and that he believes Trump was never serious about making a run.

Buffalo Businessman Carl Paladino is still considering a run for governor on the Conservative line if Trump doesn’t run.
