Hillary Clinton endorsed Andrew Cuomo in his bid for a third term as governor of New York, CNN reported.

"We need leaders who stand up for progressive values and stand up to those who try to turn neighbor against neighbor and sow seeds of division,” said Clinton, who did not mention President Donald Trump by name, the report said.

"Most of all we need leaders who believe in producing results and getting things done,” Clinton said in a speech on behalf of Cuomo at the state Democratic convention at Hofstra University on Long Island on Wednesday.

The former Democratic presidential candidate cast Cuomo as an experienced executive qualified to push against the Trump administration’s agenda. He is in a primary battle with actress Cynthia Nixon, who has never held political office.

Opponents of Cuomo said the rally felt like the establishment holding a rally for Cuomo.

“It seems that when we’re talking about party unity, it’s the establishment telling the left to shut up,” said Jumaane Williams, a city councilman and potential running mate for Nixon, CNN reported.

The actress said that her struggles to gain a foothold in the race are because Cuomo is a “dynastic governor.” Cuomo’s father was a 3-time state governor, serving from 1983 to 1994, CNN noted.

Cuomo praised Clinton after her speech, calling her a “great champion for women empowerment,” CNN reported.

Former vice president Joe Biden also endorsed Cuomo on Thursday.
