With Donald Trump pulling off a surprise victory in the presidential race, many are wondering what could be next for some of this most loyal supporters.

Republican Congressman Chris Collins and Buffalo Developer Carl Paladino have stood by and promoted Donald Trump throughout the campaign.  During a late night at Erie County Republican Headquarters, Chairman Nick Langworthy told an excited crowd that Chris Collins "might be the Secretary of Commerce by January."

Langworthy, Collins and Paladino all took proactive and public stances for Donald Trump early on.

"That won't be forgotten," said Republican Erie County Legislator Kevin Hardwick.

Will they be rewarded for their efforts with a position in the Trump presidency?

7 Eyewitness News Reporter Ed Reilly takes a closer look in his two reports and talked with Carl Paladino about being with Trump on election day.
