NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Supporters of Gov. Andrew Cuomo have returned to court in an effort to force a Democratic challenger off next month’s primary ballot.
A trial judge rejected the challenge to Zephyr Teachout’s campaign last week. The ruling was appealed, and the challenge went before an appellate court Tuesday in Brooklyn. The four-judge panel is expected to rule later this week, WCBS 880’s Marla Diamond reported.
Teachout told Diamond that Cuomo’s supporters are appealing because the governor is scared.
