NY GOP hold nominating convention
RYE BROOK -- The state's Republican Party kicked off the election season on Wednesday with its nominating convention.
While the GOP's presumed candidate for Governor, Rob Astorino, has been running for months, the convention will serve to highlight the campaigns of other statewide candidates. It will also introduce the public to Astorino's pick for Lieutenant Governor.
On Tuesday, Astorino announced that he had chosen Chemung County Sheriff Christopher Moss as his running mate. Moss is a strong opponent of the state's SAFE Act. The pair is expected to be nominated on Thursday.
