Erie County Republican Chairman Nicholas A. Langworthy and other top New York Republicans met with President-elect Donald J. Trump Wednesday in Manhattan to discuss a wide range of topics – including state politics.
"There's no question he will be engaged and a phone call away," Langworthy said. "I think he will be helpful to our chances of winning elections in New York."
Langworthy joined other New York members of Trump's transition team for the 15-minute meeting in Trump Tower. They included Joseph N. Mondello, the former state GOP chairman and long time Nassau County leader; Dutchess County Sheriff Butch Anderson, Dutchess County Republican Chairman Michael McCormack, and Onondaga County Republican Chairman Thomas V. Dadey Jr.
Langworthy said the president-elect retains a keen interest in New York politics following his overwhelming victory in the April 19 presidential primary.
"He's very interested in New York and you are going to see him active," the chairman said. "It was crystal clear to him that the infrastructure here worked for him in the primary, as opposed to other states. This administration knows New York is more than just a place to raise money."
