Cuomo’s Progressive, NY Focused Outreach Strategy: National Establishment Endorsements

Cuomo’s Progressive, NY Focused Outreach Strategy: National Establishment Endorsements

Over the past two days, national establishment Democrats have made their way to Long Island, New York for the annual state Democratic Convention. Governor Andrew Cuomo is looking to reach out to progressives in his party as he faces continued pressure from his progressive, activist primary opponent, Cynthia Nixon. Cuomo’s strategy to engage those voters displeased with his tenure in office? Hillary. Perez. Biden.

Despite DNC Chair Tom Perez’s repeated comments that committees should not be involved in Democratic primaries – he opened his remarks by throwing the party’s full support behind Cuomo.

Not to be missed from the fresh-faced progressive lineup, Former Vice President Joe Biden. Somewhere in that speech we think there was an endorsement?
