Syracuse, New York — Congressman John Katko today vehemently denounced the comment made by Governor Andrew Cuomo that “America was never that great” and called on his opponent to speak out against the shameful statement and return the corporate PAC dollars she has received from the Governor. He released the following statement:
“Governor Cuomo’s comment was inherently un-American and there is no excuse for it.
“My opponent has been bankrolled by Andrew Cuomo’s dark money, and today refused to condemn the Governor’s disgraceful comment. Any candidate for public office should stand up in the face of such a blatant, politically motivated attack on our nation and demand an apology from the Governor.
“Central New Yorkers now deserve to know if Dana Balter will return Cuomo’s dark money, or if she’ll continue to stand blindly beside him.”
- Dana Balter’s campaign is being bankrolled by Andrew Cuomo, despite her pledges not to accept dark money.
