Republican candidate for New York Governor Marc Molinaro is making a campaign stop in Utica today.

The Dutchess County Executive is on a statewide "Cuomo Corruption Tour."

Molinaro held a news conference this afternoon, where he was endorsed by Oneida County Executive Anthony Picente. 

Picente says he's worked with Molinaro, who as a County Executive, understands the needs of local governments.

Molinaro says his campaign is focused on trying to provide real, meaningful relief for New York State taxpayers.

Molinaro will also host a Town Hall tonight at 7:00 at the Delta Marriott Hotel in downtown Utica.

He'll face Governor Andrew Cuomo in the November election.
