Pataki v. Cuomo: '94 Race for Governor

  • Aired: 08/25/2017

  • Rating: NR
Just two years after famously saying no to a presidential run, 1994 saw Gov. Mario Cuomo slumping in the polls. Against all odds, a little-known freshman state senator from the Hudson Valley, George Pataki, shockingly beat the three-term incumbent. We take a deep dive into the race with exclusive footage and interviews with some of the major players including Pataki, Joe Bruno, and Andrew Cuomo.
