WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- The New York Times editorial board announced it would not endorse Gov. Andrew Cuomo, or any Democrat for that matter, in the primary on Sept. 9.

The Times, which was the first to report on Cuomo's interference with the Moreland Commission on public corruption, said that it will not endorse Cuomo because he has failed to clean up Albany, which was his top priority when he first ran for governor four years ago. 

The Times also said it won't endorse Cuomo's challenger Zephyr Teachout. The Times said that despite Teachout's strong background in political corruption, she lacks the proper interests and experience to effectively oversee the Empire State.

The Times is just one of several entities to either refrain from endorsing a candidate, or to just snub the incumbent altogether.

Taxpayer, lay off the coffee, you sent the same message umpteen times.
Cuomo let the Times be a warning to you, Preet might be just around the corner. As far as Teachout, no government experience, that could be good however she I have learned supported Occupy Wall Street....no way no how...Astorino comes out of this in decent shape, so we should be hearing more about his mother in law & the job, the dwi aide & the driver....
Interesting but who the heck do you vote for....none of the above?
Local senate race:
I loved the anti Murphy pipeline signs that cropped up overnight, plenty of them good organized effort....of course by the next day most disappeared.

Yeah, because he is a crook like most politicians in this country ! Its all about the money and the power which most politicians abuse.
Its never about the people who have to struggle just to make ends meet ! Politicians like Cuomo should be behind bars where they belong !!!!

Bravo NYT!!! Your reporting on the Moreland Commission issue should not only win a Pulitzer Prize this year but the overwhelming applause of all rational and informed voters in NYS.

Could your editorial and reporting staff be having a "St. Paul Conversion" moment ?

(God) bless the "Gray Lady" and my apologies to the "Commissars of Correctitude" by using the word "lady, "God" and referencing 'St. Paul'..

Heaven forbid!
