Governor Cuomo picked up a big endorsement on Monday.
U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer endorsed Cuomo's bid for a third term.
Schumer's endorsement comes before next week's Democratic primary between Cuomo and actress Cynthia Nixon.
Schumer said in a statement, "at a time when we are facing unprecedented challenges, New York needs Andrew Cuomo's proven, experienced leadership more than ever before."
In his own statement, Cuomo said, "I worked with the Senator for a lot of years, but he is a senior Democrat. He has been leading the fight in Washington. So having his support, working together as colleagues, that’s what it is going to take. Because, don’t underestimate the federal government. Don’t underestimate this President. He is a known slick salesman and he can sell ICE in winter to Alaska, so it’s going to take us all and it’s going to be my honor to work together with Senator Schumer."
The primary is next Thursday, September 13.
