NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Gov. Andrew Cuomo and his Democratic challenger differ on whether the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas is an issue that impacts New York.
Cuomo, who recently returned from a trip to Israel, told WCBS 880’s Peter Haskell the bonds between Israel and the Empire State are strong.
“As New Yorkers, we have a special connection with the state of Israel,” said Cuomo, who was part of a New York delegation who visited Israel on a “unity mission” last month. “We do. Economically, we do. Culturally, we do.”
