2014 GOVERNOR’S ELECTION RESULTS BY COUNTY
Remember This Map, Governor?
Earlier this week, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo took aim at New York’s incumbent Republican congressional delegation, initiating what he and the mainstream media hope will be a multimillion-dollar campaign to defeat six targeted Republican Members of Congress. He was joined by none other than House minority leader Nancy Pelosi, the poster child for precisely why the Governor’s project is doomed.
“Cuomo’s ‘New York Fights Back’ campaign is a fraudulent, self-righteous, pathetic parade put on by a cynical politician whose only desire is to promote his hopeless 2020 Presidential run. It is only a fig leaf to disguise his national fundraising efforts from new donors he is sure to milk as he warms up his White House bid,” said Erie County Republican Chairman Nick Langworthy.
As shown on the map above, Cuomo himself was widely rejected across Upstate New York for re-election in 2014, the same areas that he is working to defeat Republican House Members. Langworthy continued, “I’ve got a message for Governor Cuomo: New York sees right through your corrupt administration and your house of cards economic development schemes – it won’t be long before the whole country sees it, too. So let’s have this fight Governor, and we’ll give you a taste of exactly how New York really fights back. You won’t just fail to win House seats, you’ll lose your own job too.”
