Cuomo’s New Hire

State Attorney General Andrew Cuomo just hired a new press officer today, I heard. According to a person briefed on the hiring, Cuomo’s new hire will start sometime in March.

The new hire comes a few weeks after the departure of Cuomo’s spokesperson Wendy Katz, who went on vacation shortly after Cuomo got into office and did not return.

Additionally, with 11 months until the race, there is still ample time for a dynamic shift that could leave another candidate at the top.
