WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y -- The race for County Executive between incumbent Rob Astorino (R-Mount Pleasant) and Senator George Latimer (D-Rye) continues to get national attention.
A few days after the New York Times profiled the nastiness of the race, Politico named it one of 15 races to watch on Election Day . Astorino is running for a third term and the two are neck and neck in the polls .
Politico mentioned Latimer trying to make the referendum about Trump and his recent endorsement from Trump's opponent, Chappaqua's Hillary Clinton , while Astorino is running on his pledge to keep taxes flat.
Politico also noted the personal nature of the race, from a home owned by Latimer's wife owing more than $46,000 in property taxes to Latimer calling for Astorino to resign after a man testified he gave Astorino a discounted Rolex in exchange for being named police captain.
