Andrew Cuomo called Representative Charlie Rangel last week assuring the dean of the New York congressional delegation that he would not run against Governor David Paterson, according to Rangel.  
“He told me in no uncertain terms that he did not want rumors to lead me to believe that he was not in complete support of the governor,” Rangel told me in a phone interview just now.
Rangel said that full support for the governor seemed undercut by a report on this site in which Cuomo told Azi that “we’re a party of primaries”
“I was really surprised to read something that everything is on the table or a primary is good for Democrats,” said Rangel.
