Cuomo Turns Hard Left

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D), "who spent his first two years in office establishing himself as a fiscal conservative, turned left in his third annual address to the Legislature, and sought to reclaim the state's progressive mantle," the New York Times reports.

Cuomo "had two emotional fulcrums in his sprawling 78-minute address: gun violence and Hurricane Sandy. But most of the speech was devoted to an onslaught of proposals favored by the left wing of his party."

National Journal: "Cuomo's aggressive advocacy for some of the strictest gun control laws in the nation is already heightening speculation that he's seriously thinking about a presidential campaign in 2016."
