Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino has a new website, although its purpose isn’t spelled out until you get to the bottom: “Paid for by Astorino for Governor.”

The site includes a less-than-flattering picture of Democratic Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo and Astorino’s theme in his Republican exploratory campaign: “Is New York winning or is New York losing?”

The site includes some of Astorino’s accomplishments and a brief biography as well as a place to sign up for messages and to contribute.

Astorino recently opened a campaign committee through which he can collect contributions and pay for his exploration of a run against Cuomo.

Astorino has said he will make an announcement this month on whether he will run.
