Donald Trump's public flirtation with running for governor is being criticized by a potential Republican rival.

Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino says Wednesday that Trump needs to end "this circus stuff" and say he's running for governor or not.

Astorino has yet to declare that he's running, though he is traveling the state and has created a campaign committee. Astorino is expected to announce his decision by the end of the month.

Polls have shown either man would face an uphill race challenging Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

Astorino also claimed to have the most state party support.

Michael Cohen, special counsel to Trump, says Astorino appears to be perpetuating the media hype to create name recognition. And Cohen says Trump has more party support.
