Andrew Cuomo says he's standing by Kathy Hochul, his choice for lieutenant governor.

This despite a report by the "New York Post" that New York's governor plans to toss the former upstate congresswoman from his ticket.  Columbia law professor Tim Wu is running against Hochul in the Democratic primary and there's concern that he could eke out a win.

Hochul, meanwhile, is calling the "Post" story false and absurd.
