Cuomo Defuses Third Party Threat

"Defusing a tense and potentially campaign-changing challenge from the left, Gov. Andrew Cuomo secured the endorsement of the Working Families Party on Saturday night, easing the popular Democrat's path as he runs for re-election and solidifying his broader political prospects," the New York Times reports.

"After weeks of negotiations and last-minute tribulations, Mr. Cuomo was able to mend rifts created by some of his centrist policies and ease the concerns of Working Families, a small but influential group of labor unions and liberal activists. In doing so, the governor -- a savvy politician with rumored presidential ambitions -- simplified a re-election campaign in which he hopes to win by a large, message-sending margin."
