New Entry in Governor Race Threatens Cuomo

“Here comes someone who sounds a lot like Teachout, is emphasizing progressive values and issues, but the difference is, this woman is better connected,” Grant Reeher, director of the Campbell School of Public Affairs within the Maxwell School, told The Hill. “People know her, and he is obviously worried about it and worried he’ll lose a significant chunk of the left.”
