Gov. Andrew Cuomo declined whether he would take up an invitation from NY1 and TWC News to debate his Democratic primary opponent, Zephyr Teachout, telling reporters in Syracuse Thursday morning he would let the decision rest with “the campaigns.”

“I’ll leave that to the campaigns to work out and whatever they decide,” Cuomo said at the State Fair in Syracuse.

Asked a second time whether he’d take up a debate, Cuomo again demurred to the campaigns.

“I’ll leave that to the campaigns to work out if there should be debates, who should participate, that’s a campaign tactic I will leave to the campaigns,” said Cuomo, who is known for taking a hands-on approach with his political operation as well as his government office.

Both Teachout and her running mate, Tim Wu, have agreed to televised debates next month with Cuomo and his preferred running mate, Kathy Hochul.

Teachout, a Fordham Law professor, survived a second court challenge on Wednesday from Cuomo’s re-election campaign that sought to knock her off the ballot citing the state’s five-year residency requirement.

Both the state Supreme Court and the Appellate Court tossed the challenge to Teachout’s ballot status, and Cuomo’s campaign does not plan to appeal.

The primary is scheduled for Sept. 9.

Meanwhile, despite a summer of bad press stemming from his office’s involvement in the Moreland Commission To Investigate Public Corruption, polls have shown Cuomo still maintains a wide lead over his Republican opponent, Rob Astorino.

“I take all these polls with a grain of salt,” Cuomo said in a response. “I’ve been governor for four years, they know my record, they know what we’ve gotten done.”
