Rob Astorino will hold one of his first major fundraisers as a Republican gubernatorial candidate on March 26, according to an invitation.

Tickets to the event, to be held at the Westchester Marriott, run as high as $5,000.

The invitation was emailed out to supporters by Astorino’s campaign manager, Michael Lawler, the former executive director of the state GOP.

“Rob is running for Governor because we live in the highest taxed, most regulated, and least business friendly state in the Country,” Lawler wrote in the email. “As a result, over the past three years we have lost over 400,000 of our fellow New Yorkers to other states. We need a leader who will help create good paying jobs, and foster growth and opportunity for ALL New Yorkers. Rob IS that leader.”

The invite comes the same day as The Wall Street Journal reports that Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo will hold a $50,000-a-plate fundraiser for Republican donors to support his re-election campaign.

Cuomo last reported $33 million in the bank for his re-election campaign.

Astorino’s county executive account, which has lower donor contribution limits, had $1 million.
