Erie County GOP video slams Cuomo comments

   By Robert J. McCarthy

   The Erie County Republican Committee Monday released a paid web advertisement that joined the criticism of Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo’s recent comments indicating  "extremist" conservatives "have no place in the State of New York."

    The video, recounts Cuomo’s interview and features rebuttals from Erie County residents unhappy with the governor's remarks, according to Erie County Republican Chairman Nicholas A. Langworthy.

     "Andrew Cuomo was unambiguous in his message to more than a third of New Yorkers, and even more Erie County residents: leave town,"  Langworthy said. "This video is just a sample of the many Western New Yorkers who contacted the Republican Party to express their anger about his comments."

   The chairman also noted the "clumsy dance" Cuomo's aides have performed "trying to rewind their boss's very clear message."

    "There's no denying that Cuomo invited any New Yorker who doesn't back his radical agenda to leave the state," Langworthy said. "Generations of New York Catholics and maybe your doctor, your lawyer, your neighbor -- somehow the governor of New York thinks we should all pack our bags. This is even more proof Cuomo is out of touch and must be defeated in November."
