Welcome back , how are you .
I’m doing great. Susan , I just want to make 2 things very clear today .
Yes , I’m not talking about the 27th congressional district , or I’m not like you got Richard Brodsky well if.
You very much for making that no and write up right. While we’re on the air . I appreciate that . Thank you for people who don’t know Mr. Cole is referencing my interview with Karl Peladeau know last week . So I , I want to know how you think Molinaro is doing , how was he positioned as we kick off the general election campaign .
Todd and to be perfectly candidly we I think he’s doing great. I really do markets again around every corner of the state is being well received . You know it’s message is clear : he’s got a track record and he’s just doing a terrific job . In fact , he’s going to be in my district tomorrow in the 131st Assembly District is attending a dinner and I’m Kiran going Ontario County and you know he’s doing town halls he’s talking he’s talking directly to the people and I think that’s resonating quite frankly and and also it’s kind of interesting . It was an event last night they had several people come up to me and say in a Republican it it was , you know , another type of event and they tell you you think Molinaro has got a chance and my first reaction was . Holy smokes , they know who’s running against Andrew .
That’s the first hurdle rate. That’s correct .
I really do believe that once what are towards the mid October range and I think that there’ll be side it will step up at a plate to support Mark financially I can make a competitive , especially in the downstate markets. I actually think , right now I think Mike Molinaro would be Andrew Cuomo now state . Obviously I don’t think you’ll win New York City . I still think he can get to that 33-35% mark .
What about the summer.
And the suburbs. I think he’s going to do well I’d Marcus Mark is a very solid guy , he’s not a call super super right winger that the governor’s trying to paint him as many Donald Trump which couldn’t be farther from the truth . March got a strong environmental record . He’s got it strong .
Performances. The Duchess County executive , but . But oh .
They do really well in the primary , are you prepared to admit that.
Well cuisine running against someone that has absolutely zero experience or or real true knowledge of the issues. He’s not going to be able to get away with this nonsense with with Cynthia Nixon wet Mark .
