Cuomo, Clinton Supporters Rally in WNY

Democrats & Republicans Rally this Weekend in Buffalo

BUFFALO, N.Y. - Governor Andrew Cuomo led several "get out the vote" rallies across New York state Sunday.

His first stop was in the Queen City at the Erie County Democratic Committee headquarters on Seneca Street where he joined fellow Hillary Clinton supporters.

These supporters included Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown. 

Clinton leads Trump by 17 points in New York according to a recent Siena Poll. However, that gap is just 5 points among upstate voters. 

"We're going to knock for Hillary Clinton, and the Democratic Party and that whole ballot from the top to bottom," Cuomo said at the rally. "We're going to keep knocking on doors until those polls are closed."

At a GOP rally held Saturday, Rep. Chris Collin, an early Trump supporter, said he believes Trump will win Erie County given his support in Upstate New York.

"That'll help Joe Treanor become our next DA, that'll help everyone else running for State Assembly, certainly help me in the 27th district," he said. 

The 60th District State Senate race is one of the more important races. Democrat Amber Small is running against Republican Chris Jacobs. Whoever wins the race, along with several others downstate, could determine the party in control of the State Senate. 

Cuomo rallied at several other locations across the state Sunday for Clinton, including Long Island and Westchester.
