Cuomo Hear No Evil, See No Evil and Says 2018 Bid is on Track


     Like a man shocked to learn of gambling in a casino, Governor Cuomo says he had no inkling of the alleged corruption around him and his economic development programs.
    The US Attorney did assert there was no evidence of wrongdoing by the Governor.
     Mr. Cuomo says none of this affects his plans to seek reelection in 2018, although potential opponents like 2014 hopeful Rob Astorino and AG Eric Schneiderman likely see an opening.
      I'd keep an eye on Comptroller Tom DiNapoli, who has run his operation without scandal, and is an affable and effective campaigner.
      Contesting a Democratic primary against a powerful incumbent is risky, but its a certainty Astorino will try again.

I believe it is safe to say I share your skepticism about Cuomo doing the "I know nothing!" routine.

Benito can have the job as long as he wants it. With bums, criminals, illegals, NYC, dannies, government employees, teachers, and those confused about bathroom usage, he's in for life. DiNapoli would be a much more honest public servant, but that's not much to say when in comparison to Benito.

Yeah, DiNapoli is the difference between standing neck deep in a cesspool and stepping onto the fist rung of the ladder and only being chest deep. But it would be a step up.

Astorino is a republican I doubt he will primary Cuomo. Lol

709 I was referring to a Cuomo- Schneiderman or DiNapoli on the Dem side, and that Astorino is a sure bet to run again on the GOP side.

Cuomo 2,0 is getting very close to getting. Burned.by Bahrara,should give voters cause to dump him next time around based. On his poor judgement and close circle of these kinds of associates.
