Andrew Cuomo’s decision not to help Democrats retake the New York State Senate is a traditional move by a New York’s Democratic governors, who rely on Senate Republicans to reduce taxing and spending pressure from the left.
MSNBC’s Chris Hayes ran through Cuomo’s maneuvering in a series of local races, and suggested that Cuomo’s real agenda was stymieing progressing legislation.
“You should remember this remarkably cynical display when he does” run for president, Hayes told likely Democratic primary voters.
New York’s liberals have long detested Cuomo. But they also fear him, and Hayes speaks for much of the state’s Democratic leaders, who are loathe to confront the popular governor.
