ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Leaders of the New York state Conservative Party are backing Republican Marc Molinaro as he seeks the GOP nomination to run for governor this year.

The Dutchess County executive on Monday thanked Conservative Party Chairman Mike Long and the organization's executive committee for supporting his campaign, which he officially launched April 2.

The executive committee unanimously voted last Friday in Brooklyn to recommend that the party endorse Molinaro.

Molinaro and state Sen. John DeFrancisco are seeking the Republican nomination, which will be made during next month's state GOP convention on Long Island. Molinaro has received endorsements from most of the county Republican leaders in the state.

Conservatives will hold their party's nominating convention May 31 in Manhattan.
