Asked Wednesday whether it would be better for New York to have an all Democratic state government, Cuomo, the head of the state party who is believed to have 2020 presidential aspirations, referred to the chaos and dysfunction the last time the Dems controlled the chamber in 2009-10.
“We’ve had a unified Democratic government in Albany. It’s not a hypothetical. We’ve had it. It wasn’t extraordinarily successful. So I work with the Assembly and Senate that I’ve been given and I do the best I can,” he said.
Cuomo did say as a Democrat he supports members of his party. The governor has given money to the Senate Dems and their candidates. But the state party he controls has not.
It’s nice of a leading Democrat with national ambitions to have to say that he does in fact support Democrats, even though his actions don’t show it.
