Cuomo's Big Day

A reader passes along this footage of Attorney General Andrew Cuomo's meeting in Rockland County earlier on Thursday. As a colleague noted, Cuomo launched the first leg of his Chuck Schumer-esque 62-county tour of New York on Thursday, the day campaign finance numbers will be released.

The timing of the tour has some obvious advantages for Cuomo.

Namely, it provides Cuomo with the chance to be seen rubbing elbows with regular, average New Yorkers. That's a sharp contrast to the story told in his finance disclosure statements, which are expected to be filled with more money from lobbyists and major business people.
