Democratic Comptroller Tom DiNapoli wouldn’t say if he expects Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s endorsement this year for his latest re-election effort, but highlighted his spot on the “Democratic team” of statewide candidates.

“I’m looking for the endorsement of all of the people of the state of New York who are going to be voting,” DiNapoli said earlier today at a breakfast before the start of the first day of the Democratic convention in Suffolk County.

DiNapoli was not endorsed by Cuomo in 2010, but the then-attorney general did throw Cuomo as bone of sorts as he cleared him of any wrongdoing in a massive pay-to-play pension fund scandal that resulted in the arrest of his predecessor, Alan Hevesi.

DiNapoli, who has clashed with the governor on budget and auditing issues over the last 3-1/2 years, said he is endorsing the full slate of statewide candidates (including the governor, himself, presumably).

Indeed, DiNapoli has worked closely with Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, who has also differed with Cuomo on several issues including how to spend money gained from the JPMorgan settlement.

“I’m proud running on the Democratic team, I’m supporting the entire Democratic team, I wish everyone on the team was doing the same thing, but you’ll have to ask him,” DiNapoli said.

DiNapoli, who was re-nominated by the party earlier today, acknowledged his posture on budget issues has “ruffled feathers.”

“The comptroller is supposed to be an independent office, an independent voice. we’ve protected that role very, very jealously even if it’s ruffled feathers,” DiNapoli said. “At the end of the day, this is a Democratic team.”
