Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino has been traveling the state in an anticipatory run against incumbent Gov. Andrew Cuomo. The matchup of Westchester-ites could be a good thing for the home front as Lower Hudson Valley issues are brought to the fore on a state-wide level. Then again, it’s not clear whether Astorino has a legitimate shot against the track record, experience and, most important, mighty campaign war chest of his New Castle neighbor.
Cuomo’s push-back may be a sign that Democrats are nervous about the upstart GOP challenger. Or it may all be for show in an election that will be more one-sided than one side would like to admit.
