Add Senate Majority Leader John Flanagan to the list of Republicans considering a run for governor in 2018, sources told NY1’s Zack Fink.

Newsday first reported about the buzz in GOP circles of Flanagan’s potential statewide run.

Flanagan, who ascended to the top post in the chamber following the corruption charges against Nassau County lawmaker Dean Skelos in May 2015, first joined the Legislature in 1987 and was first elected to the Senate in 2002.

Flanagan had been considered a potential candidate for the 2014 race for governor as well as Suffolk County executive.

Republicans also considering a campaign in 2018 include Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino, Dutchess County Executive Marc Molinaro, Rockland County Executive Ed Day and businessman Harry Wilson.

Incumbent Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo plans to run for a third term next year. Cuomo’s office over the last several days has been sharply critical of Flanagan after talks for a special session in December fell apart in December.
