There isn’t much at stake for Republicans in New York this election cycle save for holding onto one major brass ring: The New York state Senate.“They have no good option,” said one GOP operative of the Senate GOP.

From the Morning Memo: How will New York Republicans, the party of Nelson Rockefeller, Jacob Javits and George Pataki, engage Donald Trump?

The Queens-born businessman, after all, is technically one of their own, leading the Republican field for president by conjuring a brash combination of Ed Koch and Rudy Giuliani’s knack for generating tabloid headlines and populist bombast, but pumped up on the steroids of the 24/7 cable news cycle and social media buffet.

But as the national GOP establishment continues to find ways of denying him the nomination at their convention in Cleveland this summer, Republicans in New York are divided.

Privately, some Republican operatives admit the party is in a bind over whether to embrace Trump and the new voters he’s brought to the polls or run away from him and his vulgar, racially charged rhetoric ahead of the general election.

And Trump could very well hold a rally on Long Island ahead of the special election in the 9th Senate district.

“Long Island polls very strongly Trump in the primary – so strong the Long Island Trump campaign leaders came to us, we didn’t come to them,” said a Trump ally who is looking closely at New York.

“The Senate (special election) will likely drive a Trump event in the district.” New York’s presidential primaries are almost always staid moments on the nominating calendar.

“A higher turnout in that Senate district will help the Republican candidate there.” Dadey earlier this year was the first GOP county leader in New York to endorse Trump.

Last week, Nassau County Republican Chairman Joe Mondello became the third, saying in a statement that Trump has “struck a chord with voters who feel alienated and disenfranchised from their government.” Trump, meanwhile, is ratcheting up his efforts in New York.

He plans to open a campaign office in the Buffalo building owned by Carl Paladino, the 2010 GOP nominee for governor and prominent Trump supporter.

The Trump campaign is expected to hold rallies in several upstate cities, too, including Buffalo, Rochester and Syracuse — rust-belt communities that have seen jobs exported overseas.
