ALBANY (AP 2002) – Andrew Cuomo said his campaign for the Democratic gubernatorial nomination failed, at least in part, because his opponent, H. Carl McCall, is black.
“The negative here is that I was running against the first African-American. It was his turn,” Cuomo, who is white, is quoted as saying in Thursday’s editions of The New York Times in a column by Bob Herbert.
McCall, the state comptroller, is the only black candidate ever elected to statewide office in New York and would become the state’s first black governor if he defeats Republican Gov. George Pataki in November.
