LANCASTER, NY (WKBW) - Donald Trump, the real estate tycoon and reality television star, fired up the crowd at Salvatore's Italian Gardens in Lancaster on Friday.

Trump drew the largest crowd for an Erie County GOP fundraiser ever, according to party chairman Nick Langworthy.

Trump delivered a 40 minute pep talk to Republicans, many of whom want him to run for New York Governor this year.

"I think the Republicans can absolutely win the gubernatorial election. But I feel strongly that you have to be unified. There has to be a united party," he said.

Will he or won't he run for governor?

"If we have a unified party, I will do it," he said.
