Real estate developer, television personality and possible gubernatorial candidate Donald Trump will be in Syracuse next month as part of a fundraiser hosted by the Onondaga County Republican Committee.
Committee Chairman Tom Dadey says he hopes Trump's visit will provide a boost to local candidates, while raising money for local candidates and party operations.
With former Rep. Ann Marie Buerkle out of the picture, Syracuse-area Republicans can concentrate on the search for a candidate to challenge Democratic incumbent Dan Maffei, who's expected to run for reelection in the 24th Congressional District. Buerkle announced on Wednesday that she wasn't interested in another race against Maffei, preferring to focus on her position on the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.
