The New York Times reports:
On Wednesday, Gov. Glenn Youngkin of Virginia is scheduled to meet with donors and other influential figures in the city. Among them will be John Catsimatidis, a grocery store magnate who has historically been a politically ambidextrous donor, but who had a long history with Mr. Trump.
People familiar with his thinking had said he had anticipated that Mr. Trump would be in a stronger position after the 2022 midterms than he ended up being in, and now that the field is likely to be more crowded than expected, it’s not clear that the governor — who is barred from seeking re-election in Virginia — will want to try to join them.
Still, his visit to New York City as the presidential primary is forming has caught notice.
Read the full article. Catsimatidis is the billionaire owner of NYC’s formerly iconic WABC-AM, now home to talk shows by the likes of Rudy Giuliani. He also owns the perpetually grimy grocery chain Gristedes.
Pence just held donor meetings in NYC. Haley is fundraising this week. And Youngkin, whose intentions for 2024 are still unclear, will be in NYC on Wednesday https://t.co/4IkfUZNaPZ
