NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Gov. Andrew Cuomo won a second term on Tuesday by easily dispatching a challenge from Republican Rob Astorino, becoming the first Democratic governor since his father, Mario Cuomo, to win re-election in the nation’s third-largest state.
CBS2’s Marcia Kramer was at Cuomo’s headquarters in Times Square Tuesday night where the excitement was building.
“We began our journey four years ago with some very clear directions,” he said in his victory speech Tuesday night. “We were going to return stability and make us the progressive capitol of the nation,” he said.
As 1010 WINS’ Al Jones reported, with his daughters and girlfriend at his side, Democrats roared when Mario Cuomo joined his son on stage.
