Andrew Mark Cuomo (born December 6, 1957, in Queens, New York) has been the Governor of New York since January 1, 2011. He was previously the Attorney General of New York, having been elected in 2006 with 58% of the vote, and before that he served as Secretary of Housing and Urban Development in the Clinton administration. His Lieutenant Governor is former Rochester mayor Robert Duffy. He is the son of former New York Governor Mario Cuomo.

Cuomo was elected as Governor of New York in 2010 with 62% of the vote. Like his father, Cuomo is pro-abortion and pro-gay rights. He signed legislation legalizing same-sex marriage in 2011.

In January 2014, during the radio interview he commented that the "extreme conservatives" that are politicians who are "right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay" had no place in the State of New York.
