In Our Opinion: Astorino giving voters a real choice

(Continued)

“It’s simply a bad law that did nothing to make any New Yorkers safer,” Astorino said. “All it did was make law-abiding citizens into criminals overnight.”

Astorino said his formula for beating Cuomo entails winning the majority of votes upstate, doing well in the suburbs, and getting at least 30 percent in New York City. His views on fracking and gun control will not play as well in the five boroughs as they do up here, and that could make that 30 percent a bridge too far.

Toward that end, we will watch closely during the next five months to see if Astorino will be giving the same kind of speeches downstate as he did in Cooperstown.
