Mario Cuomo endorsed fellow Democrat Kevin Kim in Bayside, who, if elected, would be the first Korean-American in the City Council. Cuomo referenced what he said was an ethnically motivated attack by unnamed critics, and called it “the worst kind of politics.”
Kim has accused opponent Dan Halloran of stoking racial fears.
Also in the video, Cuomo makes reference to the “culture wars” waged by Republicans. which, to some extent, Halloran seems to be on the receiving end of.
