Cuomo explains why he won't endorse de Blasio”

Cuomo endorsed incumbent Upper East Side Councilman Ben Kallos.

The people of NY, he said, would "love to have a very, very powerful government, including a federal government, involved in directly addressing their day-to-day reality".

Kallos is being challenged by Patrick Boblin, who is a member of the Democratic Socialists of America, and community activist Gwen Goodwin. And my job's to stand up for the people of New York City.

Previously, Cuomo endorsed four council candidates from Queens, where the governor was born but can no longer vote.

Before he marched in the New York Caribbean Carnival Parade, Cuomo told reporters that he does not vote in primary election - which will be taking place on September 12 - because he lives in Westchester, and that he would not be making any primary endorsements, according to the New York Daily News.

"I'm hoping viewers will see that I'm ready for the job. we've had some great momentum since the first debate and I'm looking to build on that", Albanese said in a phone interview, noting that the 7 p.m. debate will air on CBS2 News, making it more accessible than the first debate that aired on the cable news station NY1.

The Democratic mayor continued to say that if he had it his way, the government would decide "which building goes where, how high it will be, who gets to live in it, what the rent will be".

"No, I'm literally not willing to talk about 2018 right now", the mayor told the magazine.
