Arcadio Casilas, finance chairman of the New York State Republican Committee, said wealthy donors in New York are warming to supporting the candidacy of presidential nominee Donald Trump, according to lohud.com.
Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich said Trump's interviews and social media posts made the purchase of campaign ads largely unnecessary, but New York Republican National Committeeman Charles Joyce said major donors are still needed, lohud.com reported.
Joyce, himself a major GOP donor, said other big-money donors are coming around to supporting Trump's run against Hillary Clinton of Chappaqua, said lohud.com.
Casilas said he is attempting to organize a meeting between Trump and one of the billionaire Koch brothers, said lohud.com.
Trump, who owns an estate in Bedford, also owns Trump National Golf Club Hudson Valley in Stormville and Trump National Westchester in Briarcliff Manor. The Trump name also adorns Trump Tower At City Center in White Plains, Trump Plaza in New Rochelle, Trump Park Residences in Yorktown and the Donald J. Trump State Park on the Westchester/Putnam border.
