Real estate Tycoon Donald Trump says he'll only run for Governor if New York's Republican Party rallies behind him, and nobody challenges him for the nomination.
But on Friday night in suburban Buffalo, Trump talked like a candidate at an Erie County GOP fundraiser.
He said Hydrofracking the Marcellus Shale would bring jobs to Upstate New York, and New York should be getting a share of what Pennsylvania has been getting from that same underground formation.
Trump says oil and gas development could allow New York to pay off its debts and cut its high taxes.
A spokesperson for Mr. Trump recently told WHAM 1180 that a decision on whether he would seek the Republican nomination for Governor would be announced sometime in February.
