Statement From Senate Majority Conference Leader John L. Sampson RE: Andrew Cuomo

New York needs strong leaders in hard times.  I thank Andrew Cuomo for stepping forward to be our party’s standard bearer, and congratulate him as he continues his journey of public service. Andrew Cuomo understands the challenges facing New York. Throughout his career, he has tackled big problems and always put the people of New York first. Senate Democrats – our incumbents and our challengers – are ready to bear the responsibility we share with Governor Andrew Cuomo and the rest of our Democratic slate to deliver the change New York needs.
