The Donald is on a GOP roll.
Fueling speculation that he is considering a 2016 GOP presidential and New York gubernatorial bids, developer Donald Trump has added another major event to his speaking tour, New York's annual Lincoln Day Dinner this week.
It follows a campaign-style stop last month to Manchester, N.H., the state that hosts the first presidential primary and where he criticized likely GOP presidential candidate Chris Christie, governor of New Jersey.
This just in from the New York County Republican Committee:
