Gov. Andrew Cuomo is pushing for a takeover of the state Senate by his own Democratic Party, but at the same time is touting on Wednesday a good working relationship with Republicans in the state Senate.

Cuomo, in Rochester this afternoon to appear at a START-UP NY event, shared the stage with Republican Sen. Joe Robach.

“We have a very good working relationship on both sides of the aisle,” Cuomo said. “We had today Sen. Joe Robach here who happens to be of the other party. He’s a friend, he’s a colleague. We’ve reversed that partisanship that existed in Albany.”

Cuomo on Saturday pledged to help Democrats take control of the state Senate as the liberal, union-backed Working Families Party endorse his re-election.

The move for Cuomo came after 3-1/2 years of his not supporting a full Democratic takeover of the chamber, which is currently controlled by Republicans and five independent Democrats.

But it comes with eight legislative days to go before the session is scheduled to conclude this month, with a multitude of high-profile bills still up in the air, including the legalization of medical marijuana.

Asked if the effort to have Democrats win Senate control will hamper that agenda, Cuomo cited his work with Republicans.

Earlier this week, Senate GOP Leader Dean Skelos questioned whether Cuomo was a partisan Democrat or a governor who wanted to work from the center.

“And now we have Governor Cuomo who on one hand in commercials saying how great it is to work together, four on times budgets, cutting taxes, creating jobs. And then you have another Andrew Cuomo, maybe it’s a different middle initial, who is basically kowtowing to the most extreme liberal Working Families Party, saying bipartisan isn’t working in Albany,” Skelos said.

Liberals have decried the majority coalition of keeping Republicans in power at the expense of liberal measures from passing.

Cuomo, too, has benefited from the IDC-GOP coalition in the chamber, and often cites his record to pass measures such as a new gun control law and the legalization of same-sex marriage, while also racking up tax cuts aimed at businesses and property owners in the state budget.

His 2014 re-election campaign ads now airing on television also tout his efforts to work with Republicans.

The governor once again pointed to four consecutive budgets passing before the April 1 deadline as a sign that partisan gridlock in Albany has ended.

“So the lack of partisanship in Albany is something I’m very proud of,” Cuomo said. “Democrats, Republicans — we’re New Yorkers first. That’s how I govern and that’s what’s turning this state around and I’m not going back.”
