Empire State Pride Agenda
The Empire State Pride Agenda’s check to the Democrat was one of the biggest among Cuomo’s $5.5 million in contributions since January.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo, closely allied with the Senate Republican majority that once blocked gay marriage, said he’s now optimistic it will be legalized in New York.
The Empire State Pride Agenda said their count after the November elections shows a net gain of two votes for gay marriage. The group also notes Senate Republican leader Dean Skelos has promised to bring the issue to the floor again.
