Readers of Daily Kos probably need no convincing  that Gov. Andrew Cuomo is not our type of guy.  He's a corrupt lying weasel and a traitor to the Democratic party.

And he has a primary opponent.

She has very little chance of winning. I'll admit that. Probably (in a private conversation) she would admit that.  One thing is certain: If we don't vote for her and help her she has no chance at all.

So?

The first campaign I worked in serioiusly was George McGovern for president.

And yeah, he lost in a landslide.

But maybe it was a little less of a landslide because of some volunteers.

But this race is better than that one. Because, in NY, there's no chance for a Republican win. In three "generic" polls of "Democratic candidate" vs. "Republican candidate" the Dem has won by an average of 35 points. (see Dave Leip site.   NY was Obama's 3rd best state in 2012 (after Hawaii and Vermont).

And, while Andrew Cuomo is emphatically not the sort of person I want to vote for, Zephyr Teachout emphatically is

More Democrats. Better Democrats. Zephyr Teachout is a better Democrat. She's a solid progressive who takes the right (that is, the left) view on just about all the issues.

Frack Cuomo. Vote Teachout.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
