"After shaking hands and working the room, Astorino positioned himself near the entrance where the governor was expected to enter. After a 10-minute delay, Cuomo entered the room and made his way toward the stage, and the two had a brief exchange."
Hahahhahaaa! I bet Cuomo was just hoping Astorino would go away! What a POS!
During his speech, Cuomo made it a point to make Astorino look bad. while Astorino listened stone faced; "Highest property taxes in the United States of America -- Westchester County," Cuomo said. "Can you believe it? In terms of dollars, the highest property taxes in the country we pay here in Westchester County, and Moody's just downgraded Westchester County."
Cuomo's prime morning time for his speech today actually belonged first to Astorino. Cuomo's people used influence to get Rob moved to Thursday night. This is why Astorino being there this morning was a surprise and considered an ambush.
