Andrew Cuomo picks Freedom to Marry Voice for Equality, Robert Duffy, as running mate

As reported by Danny Hakim for The New York Times:

"Attorney General Andrew M. Cuomo has picked Mayor Robert J. Duffy of Rochester (read his Voice for Equality post) to be his running mate, the Cuomo campaign announced Tuesday morning.

"Mr. Cuomo has been considering Mr. Duffy at least since November, when The Times reported that he was considered by many Democrats to be a leading candidate for the lieutenant governor’s job.

"Mr. Cuomo and his advisers see Mr. Duffy, a popular former police chief, as a person who could bring upstate representation to a government that has been dominated by Democrats from New York City and Long Island."
