Republican Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino has created a campaign committee for governor as he considers a challenge to Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

The Astorino for Governor committee was registered with the state Board of Elections on Monday. Spokeswoman Jessica Proud said Astorino continues to weigh running as he takes the step this week of creating an exploratory committee.

Astorino appointed former state Republican party executive director Michael Lawler to manage the committee.
