    Donald Trump’s fired-up New York backers predict that a victory by him in November would set the stage for defeating Gov. Andrew Cuomo in 2018 — and lead to the ouster of their own GOP leader next year. They also predict that if the Manhattan developer becomes president, he’d work from the White House to turn New York away from the anti-business, tax-and-spend, “progressive’’ Democratic politicians, including Cuomo and Mayor Bill de Blasio, who now dominate City Hall and the state Capitol. The Trump supporters, who lost out Friday in an effort to convince state GOP Chairman Ed Cox to...

    ALBANY, Jan 26 — Edward F. Cox, a Manhattan lawyer and a son-in-law of President Richard M. Nixon, declared Thursday that he would not run for the Senate this year, even though Republicans had been courting him anew to challenge Hillary Rodham Clinton. The announcement from Mr. Cox ended the prospect of a dynastic clash pitting Mrs. Clinton, a former first lady, against Mr. Cox, who is married to Mr. Nixon's daughter, Tricia. In a statement, Mr. Cox said that "after careful consideration of the circumstances and conditions as they exist surrounding the race, including the now shortened time frame...

    Albany -- Edward Cox, a son-in-law of the late President Richard Nixon, said Thursday he would not resume his campaign for the Republican nomination to challenge Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's re-election bid this year. The Manhattan lawyer suspended his campaign in October after Republican Gov. George Pataki endorsed then-Westchester County District Attorney Jeanine Pirro's bid for the Senate nomination. Her campaign subsequently collapsed and Pirro heeded the call of state GOP leaders to run instead for state attorney general. That left former Yonkers Mayor John Spencer, little-known statewide, as the leading contender for the GOP nomination. Some GOP leaders pressed...

    SYRACUSE -- Six weeks after GOP leaders failed to select consensus candidates for the top of their ticket this fall, a gaggle of statewide office hopefuls gathered Saturday to plead their respective cases to rank-and-file Republicans in central New York. Former Yonkers Mayor John Spencer appears to have the GOP nomination for U.S. Senate sewn up since Pirro dropped out of the race and her closest rival, Manhattan attorney Ed Cox, halted his campaign when Pataki backed Pirro last October. Cox said he might re-enter the race if Pataki backs him, although a Pataki spokesman made that sound unlikely. Asked...

    Edward F. Cox, a Manhattan lawyer who dropped out of the Senate race against Hillary Rodham Clinton last fall, broke his silence about the 2006 campaign and yesterday signaled for the first time that he would consider re-entering the race. But Mr. Cox, a Republican who is a son-in-law of President Richard M. Nixon, said that his remarks, which were reported yesterday by The Associated Press, were made casually. He said no notes were taken, and that he considered the conversation to be off the record. The A.P. reporter declined to comment. Mr. Cox was quoted as saying that he...

    Edward Cox, a son-in-law of the late President Richard Nixon, is reconsidering his decision two months ago to withdraw from the race for the Republican nomination to challenge Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, the state's GOP chairman said Friday. "I spoke with him yesterday and he said he was reviewing whether or not to run," said Stephen Minarik. [snip] Minarik said he hoped to have county GOP chairmen meet sometime in mid- to late January, after Cox has made his decision, to consider who the party leaders would back. Independent polls have shown Clinton far ahead of any of her potential...

    ALBANY, N.Y. — As Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton boasted of new fundraising success, Gov. George Pataki on Friday threw his political muscle behind Jeanine Pirro's troubled bid for the GOP nomination to challenge the former first lady's 2006 re-election. Almost immediately, one of Pirro's chief rivals for the Senate nomination, Manhattan lawyer Edward Cox, a son-in-law of the late President Richard Nixon, announced he was quitting the race. The Pataki endorsement of the Westchester County district attorney came as Pirro faced increasing questions over why her more than two-month-old Senate campaign hasn't generated more steam and money. The Republican...

    PULASKI, N.Y. -- In the dusty, rutted parking lot outside Pulaski's American Legion hall, the lanky lawyer looking to unseat Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton next year recalled the disgrace that drove the man he refers to on the campaign trail simply as "my father-in-law" from the presidency. Edward Cox had married Richard Nixon's daughter, Tricia, at the White House in 1971. Three years later, Nixon would board a helicopter that took him into political exile in the wake of Watergate

    Hillary Rodham Clinton, New York’s first-term junior senator, whose job approval stands at 66% in the survey, far outpolls her challengers as well. Against Ed Cox, the New York City attorney and son-in-law to former President Richard Nixon, Clinton leads by 60% to 33%. Jeanine Pirro, the Westchester County district attorney who has much of the Republican Party’s leadership at her back, does marginally better, trailing Clinton by 57% to 34%. Former Yonkers Mayor John Spencer trails Clinton by a two-to-one, 60% to 30% margin.

    Knows where page 10 is: Cox is no Jeanine Pirrophoto: Steven Sunshine Maybe Ed Cox needs more of an ego. The Manhattan attorney is eyeing the GOP nod to take on Hillary Clinton for Senate next year, and he tends to strike those who know him as modest to a fault. He's not the kind of guy who boasts about his 30 years of public service, they say. He doesn't talk much about himself at all, let alone seek the limelight. Lynn Mueller, of Albany, a friend and his key political strategist, describes him this way: "Ed is a...

    (1010 WINS) (ALBANY) Vowing to ``capture the Republican and Conservative nominations county by county,'' Edward Cox announced Monday endorsements from two GOP chairmen in his bid for the 2006 Senate nomination to take on Democratic incumbent Hillary Rodham Clinton. Cox, a son-in-law of the late President Richard Nixon, is trying to blunt the drive by Westchester County District Attorney Jeanine Pirro for the GOP nod. Pirro, who announced her candidacy Aug. 8, had been urged to enter the Senate race by 46 of the state's 62 county chairmen, including Monroe County Chairman Stephen Minarik, who also is the state party...

    JEANINE PIRRO'S gaffe- marred announcement and her emphasis on liberal social positions has led to new unrest in some quarters of the state GOP, party insiders said yesterday. "A lot of people were unhappy with her boatload of mistakes, and they're starting to take another look at Ed Cox as a result," said a prominent Republican lawmaker, referring to the son-in-law of former President Richard Nixon who hopes to challenge Pirro in the GOP primary for the right to run against Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton.

    Hillary Lucks Out August 10, 2005 This column was written by John Nichols. New York Senator Hillary Clinton has always looked like a good bet to win re-election in 2006 -- probably by a margin wide enough to jumpstart the 2008 presidential campaign that many Democrats want the former First Lady to make. With the decision of Westchester County District Attorney Jeanine Pirro to seek the Republican nomination to challenge her, however, Clinton's fortunes have taken a dramatic turn for the better. Pirro, a hyper-ambitious publicity hound who frequently turns up on the Fox News Channel as a "legal affairs"...

Meanwhile, another prospective GOP challenger, former Yonkers Mayor John Spencer, told an Albany radio station...

    Claiming Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton is ``more concerned about the polls in Iowa and New Hampshire'' than the needs of New Yorkers, Edward Cox took his nascent U.S. Senate campaign another step forward Wednesday, naming an exploratory committee whose members include Henry Kissinger, Theodore Roosevelt IV, and William H. Taft. Cox conceded his closest adviser, if he does decide to challenge Clinton in 2006, will be his wife, Tricia Nixon Cox, the daughter of former president Richard Nixon. ``Tricia is my best supporter and my best adviser,'' Cox told reporters. ``She's had a lot of experience in campaigns, going back...

    Cox spoke in Manhattan Wednesday in his first appearance before reporters since forming an exploratory committee for the 2006 U.S. Senate race. Cox, 58, a lawyer who has never run for office, criticized the Democratic incumbent for supposedly eyeing the White House in 2008. "I believe that a senator should focus less on making headlines and more on producing results," Cox said. "She parachuted into New York solely for the reason of running for the Senate, and now she's running for the presidency. She is more concerned about the polls in Iowa and New Hampshire than the priorities of people...

    New York Senate hopeful Ed Cox blasted Sen. Hillary Clinton on Saturday, saying that she's failed to win New York's fair share of federal homeland security dollars in the wake of the 9/11 attacks and hasn't kept her promise to improve the state's economy. "New York is the number one target for terrorists," Cox told WABC Radio host Monica Crowley. "It is terrible that Wyoming should get $18 per capita of homeland security funds while New York gets only $2.50 (per capita)." Cox said New York was shortchanging itself by sending two Democratic Senators to Washington, arguing that Wyoming is...
