With David Paterson Giving Up on Re-Election, Will Andrew Cuomo Be as Vocal a Gay Rights Activist?

The White House didn’t want him. New York’s politicians certainly didn’t want him. And now it appears we’ll never know if voters wanted him: New York Gov. David Paterson is expected today to announce he won’t seek re-election, but he won’t be resigning from his office either. Must’ve been that lack of gay support, eh?

That leaves open the Democratic nomination for AG Andrew Cuomo — who supports gay marriage, though it’s unclear whether he’ll be as active in its endorsement as Paterson.
