Will former NYS Gov. Cuomo run for office again? New ad prompts speculation

A new commercial paid for “by friends of Andrew Cuomo” is making its rounds on television and fueling campaign rumors regarding the disgraced governor.

The ad shows clips of new segments that seem to imply certain claims against former New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo have been dismissed, challenged, or supposedly were not convincing, according to Rochester First. The final message of the commercial reads, “Political attacks won. And New Yorkers lost a proven leader.”

Cuomo resigned from office in August 2021 following reports from multiple women claiming to have been sexually harassed by Cuomo. He has heavily criticized current NYS Attorney General Letitia James’ investigation into his actions, which found the claims against him from 11 women to be legitimate.

The former governor is reportedly considering running for office again, though he has not given any specifics.
