    Donald Trump considers run for New York state governor

    ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Donald Trump is considering running for New York state governor, a leading Republican said Friday.

    Senate Majority Leader Joseph Bruno suggested Thursday a big-name candidate could be flirting with entering the 2006 contest. On Friday, he confirmed to News Channel 10 in the state capital Albany that he had been referring to Trump.

    Bruno told the station he had spoken with the real estate developer and TV personality about a possible run.

    Trump's office in New York City had no immediate comment. State Republican Executive Director Ryan Moses said neither he nor state party Chairman Stephen Minarik have had discussions with Trump about running.

    Said Frank McKay, state chairman of the Independence party: "(Trump) is a formidable candidate for anything he decides to run for. We would love to see him run for president of the United States in 2008 as a third-party candidate."

    "I'd do what I could to help give him a strong base here in New York and everywhere else in the country."

    Trump flirted with a run for president on the Reform party ticket in 2000. He has given money to Republicans and Democrats in state races.

    Republicans are looking for a candidate with name recognition and money to take on the only announced Democratic candidate, state Attorney General Eliot Spitzer. Spitzer is far ahead of all candidates for governor in the early polls.

    Spitzer won an endorsement Friday from former New York mayor Ed Koch, who cited his fellow Democrat's record as a corporate reformer.

    "As attorney general, he demonstrated a real commitment to reforming institutions from Wall Street to Main Street and I look forward to watching him work on reforming state government," Koch said at a news conference.

    Koch, a Democrat, endorsed Republican Gov. George Pataki for re-election in 2002. Pataki has announced he will not seek a fourth term.

    Spitzer is the lone Democrat in the race, although some Democrats said Thomas Suozzi, executive of Nassau County on Long Island, is considering entering the race.

    Announced Republican candidates include former Massachusetts governor Bill Weld, former state assemblyman John Faso, former secretary of state Randy Daniels and Assemblyman Patrick Manning.

    Donald Trump is a racist and so bad with money that he will financially cripple the state...
    I never forgave him after he put that ad in the times calling for the death penalty for those boys they accused of rapin that jogger in central park... and then come to find out it wasnt them...
    And now he is sooo concerned with makin people think that he is so rich when actually he is in big trouble and has been or the past 10 years...

    Why not? Bloomberg is the mayor.

    He would just turn it into a damn reality show and then try to change all these real estate laws and open a huge casino in Manhattan.

    This country is something else I tell yah.

    I know right....I think he's trying to hide a bald spot. You'd think he'd get a hair transplant or sumthin' with all that money he's got.

    I don't like spreading rumors but I once heard that Trump was a "slum landlord" where he would buy old delapidated buildings for cheap and then rent them out to poor people and make a fortune ... not quite sure if there is any truth to this nor do I think that all rich people such as him resort to such tactics but you would imagine that most people who are as affluent as the Donald would have resorted to some underhanded and devious means to achieve such wealth...

    The business world can be a very cruel place ...

    so he was born with a "silver spoon" in his mouth ?? I didn't know that and I always believed he was more or less a self-made man... sometimes I wonder how little we know about how some people "acquire" their fortune... In all honesty, I think I would still be shocked at some of the means they use to achieve their lofty status atop the hiearchy...
