Courting Erie

Steve Levy announced he’s hired a campaign coordinator specifically “for Erie County,” where Republican chairman Jim Domagalski has not committed to any of the gubernatorial candidates so far.

The county is also home to Carl Paladino.

Rick Lazio, who has been campaigning for more than a year, hasn’t managed to lock down Domagalski, who seemed to dismiss the idea of supporting Levy.

Which means Levy’s new aide, Barry Weinstein, has his work cut out for him.
