Cuomo to extreme conservatives: Stay in New York

By Tom Precious

ALBANY -– Extreme conservative politicians take note: Gov. Andrew Cuomo doesn’t want you putting "for sale" signs up on your lawns.

“I was not saying anyone should leave the state,’’ Cuomo said today in response to the controversial remarks he made last month in a radio interview about extreme conservatives having “no place’’ in New York.

“My position was the exact opposite,’’ Cuomo told reporters at the Capitol today. "We have all sorts of opinions in this state. We have people all along the spectrum. It’s one of the things that makes New York special. We can agree to disagree and everyone has a right to their opinion.’’

A transcript and link to the original interview can be found here.
