Created: 01/20/2014 6:29 PM WHEC.com

Just a day before Governor Cuomo's big budget presentation, the governor is coming under fire for comments published in the Albany Times Union about republicans in the state.

The newspaper quotes the governor from an appearance on a public road program when the governor said the current state republican party is a smaller version of the party causing so much damage in the nation's capital. The governor went on to say conservative republicans have no place in the state of New York. 

Cuomo also defended his growing re-election fund, which currently has more than $33 million in it.
