This week’s column here on NewYorker.com by The New Yorker’s David Remnick on Andrew Cuomo and his mother
The title of the article is as follows:
Andrew Cuomo and his mother won’t let you forget them in this election. What they didn’t say in the magazine, or in her more colorful best-selling memoir, Stillness at the End of the World, is that they don’t want to leave anyone far behind.
Cuomo, whose father Mario Cuomo was Governor of New York from 1983 to 1994, is locked in a tight race with Cynthia Nixon. It would be easy for one of his two children to blossom from the Cuomo family name. So far, both Andrew, 35, and Annabel, 31, have had relatively modest careers. Annabel Cuomo has worked at multiple media companies, most recently as founder and editor-in-chief of Electus, the lifestyle and entertainment company. Andrew has represented New York in the State Assembly, yet he knows he can’t do it forever. He set out to become the governor of New York at the age of 30, when Andrew Nixon was about to launch her career.

Andrew Cuomo, who is about to finish his third term as the powerful governor of New York, said he was not surprised that the State Senate blocked a revamp of abortion laws, but he was somewhat surprised that the United States Congress made abortion a bipartisan issue.
