Cuomo takes victory lap

Sep 15, 2018 12:30 am
Bill Mahoney reports at Politico that the day after Andrew Cuomo won the Democratic primary over Cynthia Nixon, he held a press conference about a hurricane in a far-off state. Then, he only spent eight minutes talking about that storm, but almost an hour bashing political opponents, and boasting of his victory. “I think I received more votes in the Democratic primary than any governor in history,” Cuomo said. The incumbent governor had been hiding from the press for two days, but he did address if a staffer was responsible for the mailer his Democratic team sent out implying Nixon was an anti-Semite. “You said he reviewed the slimy mailer; that is not true,” the governor said. “He reviewed part of the mailer which was not slimy. If he saw the negative part of it, he would have never approved it.” And he addressed the losses by six Democrats, supported by Cuomo, who voted with Republicans in the State Senate, giving them the majority. “Last night was essentially meaningless from an ultimate consequence point of view, because the Democrats are still not in the majority. This was all rearranging deck chairs, but we’re not in the majority," Cuomo said of the Democrats, who are in the majority in the Senate. Read the full story at Politico.
