Cuomo Says Now Is Not Time For Politics


Asked today whether he will support Senate Democrats to regain the majority in November, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said he won’t get into politics now.

“One of the things that has worked for us is we’ve kept the politics on the side and we’ve done government work and we’ll continue to do that,” Cuomo told reporters this afternoon. “We still have a legislative session.”

Of course, politics is never out of the equation, but the question raised will be a closely watched one this fall: After having sizable success with Republicans at the helm of the Senate, will Cuomo actively campaign for Senate Democrats to regain the majority?

“I want to keep Bob Duffy as lieutenant governor. You can quote me on that,” Sen. Joseph Robach, R-Greece, chimed in from the audience during the news conference.

“You’re going way out there on the limb, huh, Joe? You’re a gutsy guy, Senator Robach,” Cuomo joked.
