Democrat Andrew Cuomo got two big boosts Wednesday in his contentious fight for governor against Republican Carl Paladino.
Saying she’s “proud to put aside party affiliation,” GOP rising star Joanie Mahoney formally supported New York’s attorney general in the Nov. 2 election.
“We need a governor who will help reduce our tax burden, empower Upstate and make New York an affordable place to work and raise a family,” she said in a statement.
Mahoney is the Onondaga County Executive, and her endorsement gives Cuomo strong support in the central part of the state.
Cuomo also got the backing yesterday of the influential New York Business Council.
