Cuomo Planned to Can Hochul. That was before scandals enveloped his administration that led to his downfall. Aides reportedly told Kathy Hochul she would be off the 2022 ticket. Cuomo was planning his 4th run for Governor. He was seeking diversity. He felt she did not appeal to increasingly ascendant progressives in New York City. He wanted a minority to balance the ticket. Cuomo consciously sought to marginalize her. The great irony is that she is now Governor and he is on the outside looking in. How the Mighty Have Fallen. Cuomo Planned to Can Hochul. It is a reversal of fortune of epic proportions !!
