Early State of State remarks a campaign stump speech

By Tom Precious

ALBANY -- Gov. Andrew Cuomo is wasting no time delivering a re-election speech, spending the first part of his State of the State speech going through what he believes are the accomplishments during his three years in office.
"New York was literaly a joke on late night tv,'' Cuomo said of the period before he became governor.
Despite some nasty run-ins with lawmakers over the past several months, Cuomo is also giving lawmakers something all governors include in their annual addresses: love.
"In three years, my friends, you have reversed decades of decline,'' he told them in a packed convention center near the Capitol.
About 20 minutes into the speech, the governor began outlining his 2014 fiscal and policy wish-list.
