ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is poised to lead the group representing the nation’s governors, which has played a pivotal role in communicating with the Trump administration about state needs during the coronavirus pandemic.
As head of the bipartisan National Governors Association, Cuomo will have to walk a fine line between his naturally combative style and a more deferential approach to the White House favored by Republicans.
As perhaps the nation’s most recognizable governor, Cuomo’s elevated profile could help the governors association become more influential as it lobbies for increased aid for the states.
Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan will be stepping down as the chairman, allowing Cuomo to take the reins of the group.
