DEPEW, N.Y. (AP) — Real estate mogul and reality TV star Donald Trump has provided a preview of what a campaign to be New York’s governor might look like.

He called New York’s new gun control laws a disaster, supported fracking for natural gas and criticized Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s tax policies for businesses at an upstate New York fundraiser Friday.

Trump was the featured guest at a $100-per-person event held by the Erie County Republican Party in suburban Buffalo.

The New York City developer has met with Republican leaders about a possible challenge to Cuomo. But he repeated Friday his condition that he’ll only run if the state’s Republican Party rallies behind him and he faces no challengers for the nomination.

Rob Astorino, an official in suburban Westchester County, is also considering running.

The woman who as a child was the basis for the Beatles song "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" is gravely ill. It was thought by many at the time that the psychedelic song from Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart Club Band was a paean to LSD because of the initials in the title, but it was actually based on a drawing that John Lennon's young son Julian brought home from school. He told his father the drawing was of Lucy in the sky with diamonds. Lucy Vodden, now living in Surrey just outside of London _ drifted apart after schoolyard days, but they have gotten back in touch as Lennon has tried to help Vodden cope with Lupus, a life-threatening disease.
