Fresh off their anointment at the state GOP convention in Westchester today, gubernatorial candidate Rob Astorino and his hand-picked running mate, Chris Moss, will hit the campaign trail together, heading back upstate.

The Westchester county executive and Chemung County sheriff will attend the Otsego County GOP spring dinner at 6 p.m. at the Otesaga Hotel in Cooperstown, according to a press release from the party chairman, Vince Casale.

This will be the GOP duo’s first appearance together as officially nominated candidates, and Moss’ first official campaign stop.

Upstate will figure prominently in the Astorino-Moss campaign strategy. It is the region where Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s poll numbers have experienced the biggest slide, thanks largely to the passage of the SAFE Act, which both Astorino and Moss oppose.

Also attending: Rep. Chris Gibson, who is facing a challenge from Democrat Sean Eldridge in NY-19; Sen. Jim Seward and Assemblyman Pete Lopez.

UPDATE: A little more intel on Astorino’s post-convention schedule: He’ll attend Assemblyman Jim Tedisco’s annual breakfast fundraiser on Friday morning at the Glen Sanders mansion in Scotia. Consider this:

“To commemorate Astorino’s visit to the 112th Assembly District (“The land of Champions”), Tedisco will present him with championship shirts from the NCAA National Champion Union College Men’s Hockey Team and Class A State Champion Scotia-Glenville High School Boys Basketball Team.”

“He also will give Astorino a painting done by Tedisco’s wife, Mary, of a racehorse named Jim Dandy, who in l930, defeated a Triple Crown-winning horse named Gallant Fox by eight lengths at the Travers Stakes in Saratoga.”

“That year, Gallant Fox won nine races and was considered unbeatable. Tedisco thought it only appropriate that a champion candidate like Astorino should receive mementos commemorating local champions because, despite the so-called odds, he’ll win by 10 lengths when the November race for Governor is over.”
