Cuomo: Biden Is the Most Credible of All the 2020 Candidates

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) said that former Vice President Joe Biden is the most credible of all the potential Democratic presidential candidates running in 2020 during an interview with WAMC.

WAMC’s Alan Chartock asked Cuomo which potential candidates he likes to win the Democratic presidential primary, according to Politico.

“Of all the names that are out there, I think Joe Biden has the best case … because he brings most of the secret ingredient you need for a Democrat, which is credibility,” Cuomo said. “You don’t hire an airline pilot who hasn’t flown a plane. Where is the credibility in your argument? Joe Biden can say, ‘I was there. I was not the president, but I was the second seat.

Chartock also asked Cuomo if he would considered being Biden’s running mate.

“I am not even focusing on any of that. What I’m doing is what I believe I need to do for this state,” Cuomo responded.

During the interview, Cuomo “declined to directly answer questions about his thoughts on Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s Monday announcement that she has begun to explore a presidential run,” according to Politico.

“I think it sounds like a lot of people are running,” Cuomo said. “The main issue for the Democrats is not going to be the articulation of the negative, it is going to be the articulation of the positive, and credibility.”
