HASTINGS - Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino says an announcement about his plans to run for governor could be made by the end of the week.

Astorino told News 12 a formal announcement could come by Friday. The two-term county executive shared the news while attending Westchester County's annual GOP breakfast Sunday.

Astorino received a warm welcome from hundreds of local Republicans at the event, which was held at the Westchester Manor in Hastings.

"Ultimately, people vote on the person who represents Westchester the best," says Astorino. "We did it twice in Westchester. It can be done with any Republican in New York."
