Billionaire media hog Donald Trump has been wading into politics for years now. So far, his focus has been on the national level - until now.
Trump has been meeting with Republican leaders at his Manhattan office to discuss a possible gubernatorial run in his home state of New York. He said he'll make his decision in the next few weeks and that there is an even chance that he will run. Trump’s hesitation is due to the chaotic state of the local New York GOP.
In a radio interview New York State Republican Chairman Ed Cox blew off Trump’s calls for the GOP to unify its message and complained that Trump needed to go to the state meeting and talk with them: "That's what that’s what Donald Trump has to do," Cox said. "You leave your own office and you go out."
Trump has a point about the GOP – schizophrenic messaging seems to be the rule with state and national party groups. If Trump is serious about a run for any office, the position of Governor is a good place for him. He can prove himself to be a capable administrator before wading back into presidential politics.
