The New York Daily News is reporting today that for the first time Gov. Cuomo “will be actively involving himself in the effort to flip control of the U.S. House of Representatives to the Democrats by focusing on key races in New York.”
Does that sound like a man getting ready for a run at the White House in 2020? Yes it does.
“New York is on the front lines against Washington’s assault on progressive values,” Cuomo said in a message sent out by the Nassau County Democratic Party Sunday afternoon. “Join us for a rally to kick off the start of New York State’s coordinated campaign to take back the House district by district.”
By the lights of those who track such things, New York has 6 seats that could be within reach, which is a quarter of what would be needed to take the House.
According to The News “Cuomo has traditonally endorsed different Democratic House candidates, but has had little involvement in the campaigns.” Got it?
Cuomo is a bit too conservative for my taste, but I’d vote for literally anyone who could beat Trump. And, yes, I mean literally.
