Rensselaer County Assemblyman Steve McLaughlin for Governor?

ALBANY -- Is a local lawmaker about to take on the political challenge of a lifetime?
CBS6 Political Analyst and New York Post State Editor Fred Dicker is reporting that Melrose Assemblyman Steve McLaughlin is considering a run for governor against Andrew Cuomo new year.
Dicker says state Republicans concede McLaughlin could be their candidate because few of them believe Cuomo can be beaten.
Funding a statewide campaign will be among the hurdles McLaughlin would face; Cuomo has $22 million in the bank, McLaughlin has $4,400.
