Eric Adams Isn’t Worried as People Think Former Governor Andrew Cuomo Might Try to Become the Mayor of NYC!

Mayor Eric Adams has dismissed concerns about former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo potentially challenging him in the 2025 mayoral race. Asked about Cuomo’s possible candidacy, Adams responded confidently at a recent press briefing, stating, “[I’m] not concerned with that, I’m concerned with governing this amazing city.” He added, “You don’t spend 35 years climbing to the top of the mountain and worry about the view. You enjoy the view.”

Cuomo’s spokesperson, Rich Azzopardi, did not comment on Cuomo’s potential candidacy but reiterated Cuomo’s commitment to fighting for New Yorkers.
