CUOMO WEIGHS IN: NY Governor Says Biden is Democrats’ ‘Best Case’ to Beat Trump in 2020

Originally published at:

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo weighed-in on the current state of the 2020 presidential election Wednesday, saying former Vice President Joe Biden has the “best case” for beating Donald Trump in a national race.

“Of all the names that are out there, I think Joe Biden has the best case,” said Cuomo after starting his third term as Governor of New York. “I think Joe Biden has the best case because he brings the most of the secret ingredient you need to win for a Democrat, which is credibility.”

“The two men have a longstanding relationship. Mr. Biden spoke in May at the New York State Democratic Committee convention as it nominated Mr. Cuomo over Cynthia Nixon for the governorship. In 2015, Mr. Biden visited New York to offer his condolences to Mr. Cuomo as he mourned his father, former Gov. Mario Cuomo. That same year, Mr. Cuomo traveled to Delaware to pay his respects after the death of Beau Biden, the former vice president’s son,” writes the Wall Street Journal.
