NEW YORK (AP) — Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is backing New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo in his bid for a second term.
Clinton appeared Thursday at a Manhattan rally with the Democratic incumbent and his pick for lieutenant governor, Kathy Hochul (HOH’-kuhl).
Clinton says Cuomo is the “right leader at the right time.”
The rally was run by the Woman’s Equality Party, a political organization founded by Cuomo.
Clinton is considered the presumptive front-runner for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination if she decides to run. She lives in a New York City suburb.
Cuomo has also been touted as a potential presidential candidate but is unlikely to mount a bid if Clinton runs.
Cuomo faces Republican Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino in the Nov. 4 general election.
