ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - In New York state government news, Republican Marc Molinaro says he's poised to make his run for New York governor official.

The Dutchess County executive has told Republican Party leaders he's running but he's yet to announce his candidacy to voters. That could soon change.

In a letter to local GOP chairpersons obtained by The Associated Press, Molinaro writes that he'll publicly kick off his campaign "in the near future."

Meanwhile, Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo's proposal to require more information about the groups behind online political ads picked up the support of U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar.

The Minnesota Democrat said on a call with reporters that Cuomo's pitch to subject online ads to the same rules as print and broadcast campaign ads could be a national model.
