Sen. Grisanti Begs Gov. Cuomo for Help


BuffaloNews on marriage flip-flopper Sen. Grisanti:

Buffalo Republican Senator Mark Grisanti acknowledged his re-election battle this year will not be easy, and said he would “very much appreciate’’ if Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo gives him some political support.

“I don’t think I’m going to have a cakewalk at all,’’ Grisanti said in an interview today at the Capitol, acknowledging his troubles with conservatives and religious groups back home, in part, over his vote on the state’s gay marriage law last year.

... Grisanti said he has no discussions with Cuomo on his political future and there was never any talk last year of such help in return for his vote “But if I see the governor and there’s something he can do to help me, I would very much appreciate it,’’ Grisanti said.
