Rochester, N.Y. (WHAM) - The Republican candidate in New York's race for governor visited Rochester for the second time in five days.

On Tuesday, Marc Molinaro spoke at Monroe County Republican headquarters on State Street, discussing his platform for governor.

Molinaro debuted what he calls the Empire State Freedom Plan. He said it is a comprehensive effort to make the state more competitive and provide meaningful property tax relief.

"New York, for too long, has been taxed too much and New Yorkers are getting too little in return," Molinaro said. "And so our Empire State Freedom Plan focuses on creating that opportunity again. Reducing taxation on families, farmers and small businesses and providing relief necessary to grow the ecomony and keep New Yorkers here."

The former Dutchess County executive was in Rochester on Friday, talking about rebuilding inner cities in the state.

Governor Cuomo, the Democratic and incumbent candidate, argued on Tuesday that more people are leaving the state for personal reasons or "climate based" reasons, not economic-related reasons.

Cuomo and Molinaro will be facing off against Libertarian candidate Larry Sharpe in the general election in November.
