ALBANY—About 90 minutes after I posted this story about Ed Cox making a run for Republican state chairman, I got a call from Bill Nojay, a talk show host in Rochester, who said the gears are very much in motion.

“There are a lot of county chairmen and party activists across New York State that are encouraging Ed to go for this,” Nojay, who is a close friend of Cox, said. “As I understand it, he’s going to spend the next few days on the phone soliciting support.”
