New York - New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and his Republican challenger Marc Molinaro didn't hold back last night in their only scheduled debate before the November election.
Governor Cuomo slammed the Dutchess County Executive for supporting Washington politics. Molinaro went after Cuomo on a number of issues including the MTA and government corruption. He said Cuomo abandoned his responsibility for the MTA, while charging that he's led the most corrupt government in the state of America.
Molinaro pointed out that Cuomo ended an anti-corruption commission. The Republican candidate also hammered the governor for his relationship with former aide Joseph Percoco, who's now a convicted felon. Cuomo slammed Molinaro for his wife's job which he called pay to play. Molinaro's wife worked for several years for an architecture firm that does business with and has received tax breaks from Dutchess County.
The Democrat Cuomo accused the Dutchess County Executive of being part of a Republican party that's working to divide the country. The GOP candidate fired back, saying the governor's legal firm once represented Trump before he took office. Molinaro also says Trump was at Cuomo's bachelor party in 1990.
