New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a Democrat, said Tuesday that former Vice President Joe Biden has “the best chance” of beating President Donald Trump in the 2020 election.
"I think he has the best chance of defeating President Trump, which I think is the main goal here," Cuomo said in an interview with CNN’s Alisyn Camerota. “He has the experience, he has the background, he has the talent, I think he has the personality for the moment and I think he can unify the Democratic Party.”
Although Biden has not officially announced that he is seeking the Democratic nomination, he is expected to make an announcement this week.
Cuomo also was asked if he regrets not entering the race himself after he was reelected to a third term last year.
“I do not regret [it]. I have a great job, I love what I’m doing. I want to help elect the next Democratic president and I think Joe Biden has the best shot at doing that,” he said.
During that same interview, Cuomo said he disagrees with Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, an independent who is a frontrunner for the Democratic nomination, on voting rights for incarcerated felons.
“I disagree with Bernie Sanders. You are in prison for a felony, you’re paying your debt to society. I don’t think you should have the right to vote and participate as a full citizen,” Cuomo said.
