Cuomo to campaign with Hochul

By Tom Precious

ALBANY – Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo is working out details for a campaign appearance with Rep. Kathy Hochul sometime Friday in Western New York.

Cuomo said he is appearing with several congressional Democrats on Friday, including Hochul and Rep. Louise Slaughter of Rochester. He did not elaborate with any details.

The event will be held in a Rochester union hall.

Meanwhile, Cuomo’s plan for acting as a surrogate for President Obama is still up in the air. As he has been saying for a week, Cuomo said he is ready and willing to travel on behalf of the president in swing states, but that he is still awaiting word from Obama campaign staffers on where they might want him to go.

"I’m basically on stand-by," Cuomo said this morning on an Albany radio show of his plans to hit the stump for Obama.
