NBC News Political Director and Moderator of Meet the Press Chuck Todd joined News10NBC Anchor Brett Davidsen for an interview after the news broke Tuesday afternoon that Gov. Cuomo will resign, effective in 14 days.
News10NBC just interviewed Todd on Friday.
Tuesday, Davidsen asked Todd what he believed was the final straw for the governor’s resignation, whether or not the governor saved any face in his 20-minute speech Tuesday, whether or not Todd believes Cuomo could have found a way to weather the controversy, whether or not Todd believes Cuomo can "resurrect" his political career, whether or not 14 days is enough time for a smooth transition for Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul to take over and what challenges she will face when she assumes the role.
