Spending Big Bucks. Cuomo has reportedly budgeted 369,000 for his initial ad buy. His commercial is airing around the state this week. The spot portrays him as victim of a hatchet job. It ends with the message, “Political attacks won. And New Yorkers lost a proven leader.” The ad campaign faces an uphill battle. Polls show that a majority of New Yorkers believe him guilty of sexually harassing multiple women. Most view him unfavorably and see his resignation as justified. Any other disgraced pol would retreat into the background. Not so Cuomo, a Queens street fighter plotting a political comeback. We regrettably have not heard the last from him. Spending Big Bucks. Whether he changes many peoples minds is a heavy lift !!
