Abstract

Last week, the incumbent Governor of New York State, Andrew Cuomo defeated his primary opponent, Fordham Law School professor Zephyr Teachout. Richard Brodsky writes that Cuomo only ‘eked out’ victory, given his much larger campaign spending and voters’ familiarity with him. He argues that despite his progressive record on social and identity issues, Cuomo’s adoption of Republican economic ideas, along with a series of ethical and personal missteps, allowed Teachout to make gains that built on Democrats’ discontent with the incumbent.
