Andrew Cuomo rivals in political arena in 2022 races

For the first time in 24 years, Andrew Cuomo’s name will not be on the Democratic primary ballot for a statewide office this year.

The deadline for filing petitions as a third-party candidate in a general election also came and went on May 31 without any action from the former governor.
