Now that the Working Families Party says the U.S. Attorney’s office has decided not to press charges against it, the focus will return to the party’s other pressing matter: whether Democratic gubernatorial nominee Andrew Cuomo will accept the party’s nomination?
When the endorsement was offered to him, Cuomo said no, citing the ongoing investigation by the U.S. Attorney's office.
The party, in response, nominated a placeholder candidate they could swap out later.
But a number of prominent Democrats weren't deterred. Already appearing on the WFP line are people like Sens. Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand and a bunch of Democratic congress members and state legislators.
I sent an inquiry to Cuomo’s campaign seeking a response to the WFP news. I'll update when I get a response.
