Gov. Andrew Cuomo dipped his toe further into national waters with his election as the policy chair of the Democratic Governors Association. Cuomo is joining the DGA’s leadership structure after dispiriting election year for Democrats at the federal and state levels. After the 2016 elections, Democrats will control only 16 governors offices around the country. Cuomo, however, is in line for a potential White House run in 2020, and has in recent weeks indicated New York will be a national leader in resisting any federal policies from the Trump administration deemed discriminatory.
