Republican candidate for governor Rob Astorino on Monday said Gov. Andrew Cuomo is “disrespecting the Democratic process” but not debating his primary opponent, Fordham law professor Zephyr Teachout.

“This is a democracy and in a democracy you’re supposed to debate your opponent,” Astorino said in a web video released this morning. “It’s a tradition that dates back all the way to colonial times.”

NY1 and Time Warner Cable News have invited both Cuomo and Teachout to a televised debate next month as well as their respective candidates for lieutenant governor, former Rep. Kathy Hochul and Columbia professor Tim Wu.

Both Teachout and Wu have accepted the invitations, while Cuomo and Hochul have offered non-committal responses when asked about the debates.

And while he’s called for debates in upcoming general election contest, Astorino has said he wants a one-on-one debate with Cuomo — a slight that Green Party candidate Howie Hawkins says is unfair, especially considering he is nearing 10 percent in some public opinion polls.

Astorino, nevertheless, has been more than happy to promote Teachout’s candidacy, appearing alongside her at a news conference earlier this summer bashing Cuomo on ethics.
