Early-bird Jason Horowitz made it to this morning’s 8 a.m. press conference where the Rev. Al Sharpton endorsed Andrew Cuomo. Standing with Charlie King and Cuomo, the Rev. Al Sharpton said, “It’s time to stop the politics of desperation, of mudslinging.”
As if there was any doubt who he was referring to, Sharpton added, “This last minute desperation campaign is, in my opinion, what got us off the mark in 2001.”
He’ll be here all week, folks.
The presser, which for some reason was scheduled right before the 8:30 AG debate, ended without anyone taking questions.
