Mayoral candidate Eric Adams has come out swinging against Gov. Andrew Cuomo following his Democratic primary win.
Mayor de Blasio has battled Cuomo for more than seven years, and almost always lost. But Cuomo is weaker than he’s ever been — and Adams can take advantage of his own goodwill with the public and with lawmakers to gain the upper hand early.
First, Adams had an aggressive response to Cuomo’s $138.7 million “office of gun violence prevention.” In response to Cuomo’s threat — er, pledge to “do with gun violence what we just did with COVID,” Adams snarked: “what took so long . . . watching these babies die, year after year after year? . . . No one seems to care.”
