Rob Astorino wants to go mano-a-mano with Andrew Cuomo, and no other minor-party candidates.

Astorino on Wednesday with reporters reiterated his call for debate with the incumbent Democratic governor, but insisted he should take him on directly.

The GOP candidate for governor is mindful of the 2010 debate, which included “Rent Is 2 Damn High” candidate Jimmy McMillan, “Manhattan madame” Kristin Davis and former Black Panther Charles Barron in addition to Cuomo and Republican nominee Carl Paladino.

“We know the rent’s too damn, OK? But we need to know why the taxes are too damn high and that’s the question I want him to answer,” Astorino said.

Howie Hawkins, the Green Party candidate, achieved ballot access in 2010 and would certainly protest being shut out of any debate.

But the format of the 2010 debate did draw critics for its circus-like atmosphere.

The effort was seemingly replicated in an Idaho gubernatorial debate this month that featured similarly odd-ball candidates.

“To be honest with you I think it doesn’t make sense,” Astorino said of including third-party candidates. “The only way that we’re going to have an honest debate is with the two major party candidates. One of us is going to win.”

Cuomo, he said, would be hiding in the crowded field on stage.

“The rest of that is just gobbling up time so he doesn’t have to answer questions,” he said.
