WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- New York Governor Andrew Cuomo told reporters that New Jersey Governor Chris Christie refuted reports that he advised Westchester County Executive Robert Astorino to run against Cuomo next year, according to the Democrat and Chronicle.

The Gannett Albany Bureau did report that Astorino and Christie had a closed door meeting with their wives in Arizona recently. Cuomo says that Christie did not advise Astorino to run against him in the 2014 Gubernatorial race, the Democrat and Chronicle said.

Chris Christie is one of the few Republicans of today, that I have any respect for...respect that would be lost if he would support Mr. Astorino for governor of NY.
As Mr. Christie saw in the past year, sometimes the party line either isn't the way to go or it just doesn't help.
What I'm hoping for are candidates that are running and taking action FOR the voters- not the special lobbyists, the super PAC people or the high party folks....just, know, the people.

Native New Yorker:

Me thinks our Governor is worried that his enormous TAX and SPEND policy will be exposed.

He has learned at the feet of the master - Senator Schumer - DIVERT attention away from his policy failures.
