“Hours after Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s pick for lieutenant governor published a video touting her liberal credentials, her challenger said her voting record “should be disqualifying” for a Democrat seeking office …”
Andrew is concerned about this:
“Gov. Cuomo’s political operatives are eyeing a “painful scenario’’ to dump Kathy Hochul, a moderate upstater, as the governor’s running mate for lieutenant governor amid growing signs that leftist law professor Tim Wu is picking up momentum in the Sept. 9 Democratic primary … Wu won the surprise endorsement of The New York Times as well as other left-of-center groups last week as they criticized Hochul’s past opposition to state aid for illegal aliens and her 100 percent rating from the National Rifle Association …”
Perfect opportunity to poison Hochul to both the Left and Right:
The New York State Rifle & Pistol Association Political Victory Fund bestows a grade of “F” upon Democrat Lt. Governor candidate Kathy Hochul. NYSRPA has decided to make a special exception for Hochul to our long standing policy of how incumbents are rated.
“We usually grade incumbents based upon their actions in office,” said NYSRPA President Tom King. “Using that criteria, Hochul would have earned an “A“.”
It is common for political candidates to say whatever they think is necessary to get elected, but it is unclear to NYSRPA why Hochul feels the need to hide her record.
“There’s a reason not a single candidate in New York is sucking up to the gun prohibitionist groups,” said King. “They’re nothing but astroturf. They have never been able to turn out voters on their issue. Nevertheless, if it makes her happy, we’ll give Hochul an “F” rating and tell everyone to support Tim Wu instead.”
