During his Saturday press briefing, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo addressed growing Democrat support for him to replace Joe Biden on the presidential ticket.
In a new national poll shared with the New York Post, 56 percent of Democrats prefer Governor Cuomo over presumptive nominee Joe Biden, who received 44% support — a twelve-point margin.
“Democrats want to see you replace Joe Biden on the ticket,” a reporter told Cuomo. “What is your reaction?”
Cuomo replied, “That is, on one hand, flattering. On the other hand, it is irrelevant. But to the point that’s flattering, I appreciate it.”
He then reiterated that he wants to keep politics out of the overall response to the coronavirus pandemic, which he has said repeatedly in past press conferences. Video Below
“Now it’s more important than ever before that people understand there is no politics here,” Cuomo said. “Sometimes it can work and it can work right. And sometimes at a time of crisis, you actually see people who play to their strengths.”
“There is no politics here,” he continued. “I have no political agenda, period. I’m not running for president. I’m not running for vice president. I’m not going anywhere. I’m not going to Wsshington. I’m staying right here.”
“I said to the people at this state unequivocally when I was running for government, I will serve as your governor,” he concluded. “…I am going to do what I said I was going to do because that’s who I am. So, that’s what I’m going to do, period.” Video Below
