GOP gubernatorial candidate Rob Astorino has tapped an upstate law enforcement official as his running mate.

Chemung County Sheriff Christopher Moss is set to run for lieutenant governor.

Moss is a strong opponent of the SAFE Act, which Governor Andrew Cuomo signed into law last year.

The legislation bans some semi-automatic rifles and requires a registry of assault weapons.

The pick comes as Republicans are set to meet for their state convention in Westchester County this week.

Cuomo has not yet announced his running mate, but a decision is expected soon.

His current lieutenant governor, Bob Duffy, is not running again.

The Democrats will hold their convention on Long Island next week.
