The New York Times on Tuesday announced its endorsement of Andrew Cuomo for governor while also issuing biting criticism of the Democrat.

“In his two terms as governor, Andrew Cuomo has had significant accomplishments. But he has done little to combat the corruption in the Legislature and his own administration, and he has allowed the subway system, the foundation of the New York City economy, to rot. The case for change, at a time when so many New Yorkers yearn for change, is not hard to make,” the editorial board wrote.

The Times said Cynthia Nixon, the only Democrat “with the guts to take on Mr. Cuomo” in the primaries, had a lack of experience in government or management “of any sort,” but that her pressure on Cuomo yielded positive results.

The newspaper praised Cuomo on his gun reform efforts, along with his actions on raising the state’s minimum wage and standing up to President Donald Trump, yet slammed him on the corruption in Albany and his handling of the New York City subway system.

Cuomo “merits one more chance to serve New York and fulfill his potential as governor,” though, as his legacy is at stake, and as statehouse reformers “are demanding dramatic progress on promises long stymied by special interests and Albany deal-making,” says the Times.

“Mr. Cuomo is flawed. When he allows petty enmity and political grievance to distract him from his commitment to public service, he is his own worst enemy. But when he confronts a real problem and gets down to work, he is a very capable governor,” the Times says.
