Maury Thompson writes in the Glens Falls Post Star U.S. Rep. Chris Gibson is among a handful of politicians state Republican leaders are considering as a challenger for Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo in 2014. Stephanie Valle, a spokeswoman for Gibson, confirmed he has had conversations with Republican leaders about the governor’s race, but at this point, she said, he is focused on his congressional district. The New York Post earlier this week reported Gibson was among five politicians being considered by the state GOP. The five were identified as Gibson, Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino, investment fund manager Harry Wilson, Dutchess County Executive Marc Molinaro and Chautaqua County Executive Greg Edwards.
