Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump is gearing up for the New York primary on April 19.

Trump unveiled his New York campaign leadership team, which is led by three honorary co-chairs — Dutchess County Sheriff Adrian "Butch" Anderson, U.S. Rep. Chris Collins and Buffalo businessman Carl Paladino. 

Collins, a western New York Republican, is also co-chair of Trump's U.S. House Leadership Committee. He was the first member of Congress to endorse the Manhattan real estate mogul. 

Anderson is a longtime friend of Trump's. And Paladino, who ran unsuccessfully for governor in 2010, has helped Trump organize his New York campaign. 

"I'm very pleased with the courage and commitment our leadership team has shown for Donald Trump is bringing people to the Republican Party like no other candidate in a generation," Paladino said in a statement. 

Fourteen other GOP leaders have been named co-chairs, including Onondaga County Republican Chairman Tom Dadey, Onondaga County Clerk Lisa Dell and Erie County Republican Chairman Nick Langworthy. 

Trump's leadership team also includes 33 Republican county chairs who have endorsed his campaign. The supporters include Dadey, who was one of the first New York chairs to endorse Trump.

"New York is my home and I am so proud to have been able to assemble such an incredible team," Trump said in a statement. "I have watched and known these people for so many years. They love New York and our country. Together, we will make America great again." 

A Monmouth University poll released Wednesday found Trump leads the primary by 27 points — 52 to 25 percent — over his closest competitor, Ohio Gov. John Kasich. 

Trump plans to hold several campaign events in New York over the next couple of weeks. He headlined a rally on Long Island Wednesday and has scheduled appearances in Albany and Buffalo
