DLCC Calls on Gov. Cuomo to Unify Party
Will of New York Voters Must Be Respected, Anti-Trump Firewall Must Be Established

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee Executive Director Jessica Post called on New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo to unify the Democratic caucus in the state Senate.

“New Yorkers elected a Democratic majority to represent them in both chambers of the legislature, and Gov. Cuomo has an obligation to stand up and ensure that the will of the voters is respected in the New York Senate,” said Post. “As head of the Party in the state, Gov. Cuomo needs to unify the Democratic caucus, and as a national Democratic leader, he needs to firmly establish the Democratic governing trifecta voters clearly wanted when they cast their ballots in November. New York is in a position to be a leader in the fight against Trump’s dangerous and regressive agenda, and I hope Gov. Cuomo capitalizes on this opportunity to establish his state as a firewall against Trump’s extremist policies.”
