Cuomo 'very similar' to moderate Lazio, says Cuomo

One line that stood out from Andrew Cuomo's Q&A with reporters this afternoon:

"Mr. Lazio was basically a moderate Republican. Many of the positions that I had were similar to positions that Mr. Lazio had," Cuomo said.

Cuomo went on to characterize his current Republican opponent, Carl Paladino, as "extreme" and, on abortion, "frightening."
