Gillibrand: The Paterson-Cuomo Situation Will Resolve Itself

Kirsten Gillibrand said she doesn’t think there will be a primary for governor next year, despite Governor David Paterson’s abysmal poll numbers and Andrew Cuomo’s obvious designs on the office.
In a brief interview after she spoke to Democratic activists at a DL21C event at a bar in East Midtown last night, Gillibrand said repeatedly that the “politics will take care of themselves,” but did not elaborate on the point, preferring to bring the discussion back to the fiscal crisis facing the nation and New York State.
I asked Gillibrand if she thought Cuomo would run next year.
“[W]hat I’ve said in the past is I really think the politics will take care of themselves.
