Nicki Minaj has endorsed the Democrat faction led by Andrew Cuomo.
If Nicki Minaj gets her wish, Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul would be joining Andrew Cuomo for a second term in office. Nicki’s public endorsement for Attorney General went to public advocate Letitia James, whom she referred to as Tish James, rather colloquially (as do many). James’ political opponent Zephyr Teachout has sought an endorsement fromCardi B literally two hours after Nicki Minaj made her Twitter post urging voters. Teachout has since deleted her post.
Zephyr Teachout, who is backed by the New York Times, lost to Andrew Cuomo in 2014 Democratic race for New York’s Governorship. Cuomo to his credit, is part of notable political family in the state. Primary elections take place today, the general election is slated for November 6th. Sean Patrick Maloney and Leecia Eveseem to be the only candidates who have not had a brush with the hip hop establishment, so far.
