COOPERSTOWN – Dutchess County Executive and Republican gubernatorial candidate Marc Molinaro made a stop in Cooperstown on Wednesday.

Molinaro visited with the Otsego County Women’s Republican Club at the Otesaga Hotel. While he was there, Molinaro said the state needs to drive down taxes and grow more jobs.

Molinaro also reiterated one of his campaign messages, saying that despite what’s going on downstate, he will always fight for upstate New Yorkers.

“This governor has leveraged people against one another,” Molinaro said. “I want to bring people together – regardless of party, regardless of region – to understand that by working together, we can achieve success. Which means being respectful of the fact that there are real struggles and challenges upstate that maybe downstate doesn't necessarily feel.”

Molinaro is the only Republican candidate running for governor. Next month, Gov. Andrew Cuomo will face off in a primary election with Cynthia Nixon, who will also appear on the Working Families Party line in the general election on Nov. 6. 

Other candidates who will appear on the ballot include Libertarian candidate Larry Sharpe, independent candidate Stephanie Miner and Green Party candidate Howie Hawkins.
