Gov. Andrew Cuomo cruised to an easy victory on Tuesday, becoming the sixth New York governor in the past century to win a third term.

Within minutes of the polls closing, NY1 and Fox News projected Cuomo as the winner over his GOP rival, Dutchess County executive Marc Molinaro.

The general election campaign featured just one televised debate and few public campaign appearances by Cuomo.

The article goes on to state the following:

While the governor has insisted he’ll serve his full four-year term unless “God strikes me dead,” political observers say it wouldn’t require divine intervention to change Cuomo’s trajectory.

“Almost any elected official who has a one-in-one hundred shot at becoming president strongly considers taking it,” said Democratic political strategist Evan Thies.

Whether Cuomo throws his hat into the 2020 presidential ring or chooses to focus on burnishing his legacy, political observers say he could kill two birds with one stone by focusing on infrastructure projects and issues important to middle class New Yorkers, like access to higher education.
