SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- New York's Governor, Andrew Cuomo, is taking sides in a primary for the democratic nomination for mayor in Buffalo. Cuomo says voters should re-elect incumbent Byron Brown. But when asked if he would be making an endorsement in the three way primary for mayor in Syracuse, involving state democratic co-chair Stephanie Miner, the Governor said no.

"My relationship with Buffalo is different. My relationship with this mayor is different. We go back a long way. My experience in partnership with this mayor is different, so I think this is an extraordinary situation," Cuomo said.

Cuomo and Miner had a much publicized falling out over the mayor's criticism of his plan to allow cities to spread out pension payments over 20 years to ease municipal costs. She called it a "gimmick."

The two had a reunion in Syracuse in late May, but their relationship is still not considered close.
