Cuomo: I want to sign a same-sex marriage law

Speaking at a cocktail reception for the state's largest gay lobby, Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Cuomo said he wants to sign same-sex marriage into law.

I don't want to be the governor who just proposed marriage equality. I don't want to be the governor who lobbies for marriage equality. I don't want to be the governor who just fights for marriage equality. I want to be the governor who signs the law that makes equality a reality in the state of New York.

Cuomo left before the dinner began, saying he had a previously scheduled private event.
