TARRYTOWN - Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino held a fundraiser in Tarrytown Thursday night as he considers a run for governor.

Outside the fundraiser, dozens protested over Astorino's support for fracking, a controversial technique for extracting natural gas.

Astorino has been critical of Gov. Andrew Cuomo for holding up fracking in the state, saying it's hurting the economy.

A spokesperson for Astorino says they raised about $200,000 Thursday night. He currently has $680,000 in his campaign coffers, compared to Cuomo's $33 million.

Next week, Astorino is set to host a fundraiser for the state GOP in Albany.
