Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino, who is running as a Republican candidate for governor, says he expects to join Donald Trump and Carl Paladino Tuesday at an Albany rally for gun rights.

Speaking on WNBF Radio’s Binghamton Now program, Astorino said all three men are planning to attend the event, which is being organized by opponents of the New York SAFE Act.

Trump recently announced he would not run for governor after saying he’d be interested in being the Republican candidate if the party would unite behind him.

Paladino was the party’s candidate for governor four years ago. He’d been encouraging Trump to run this year.

Speaking of Trump and Paladino, Astorino said: “We’re a lot more united than people think.”

When asked whether the three men would be standing side-by-side at the Albany rally, Astorino said: “I think we might even be holding hands.”

On another issue, Astorino said he was just getting started on the process of choosing a running mate. He said the person he selects won’t necessarily be from upstate. He said his choice for lieutenant governor will be the person he believes will be most qualified for the job.
