Santo Domingo.- Aiming to shore up Latino support for his re-election bid, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo will make the third overseas trip of his tenure on Friday with a visit to the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico, The Wall Street Journal reports.
A Cuomo campaign spokesman was quoted as saying Wednesday that the Democrat facing re-election in November will make both stops in a single day, and will hold a press event in San Juan on Friday afternoon. “Cuomo said last weekend that he was considering the visit to go down and pay respects.”
“The community here very much resonates with their homeland and I have a history with Puerto Rico—I did a lot of work when I was in the federal government—and Dominican Republic, too,” Cuomo said, quoted by wsj.com.
