Gov. Andrew Cuomo didn’t come out and say there was no need for debating his primary opponent, Fordham Law Professor Zephyr Teachout.

But he did indicate he’s fine without having a one-on-one forum with his little-known Democratic foe, who is challenging him in next week’s primary.

Cuomo, speaking with reporters in New York City, said he’s still communicating with voters, albeit in his preferred method.

“Sometimes there are debates, sometimes there aren’t debates,” Cuomo said. “There are debates if the campaigns can work it out. Otherwise, I’m communicating with voters all day long.”

This is a similar response his running mate, former Rep. Kathy Hochul has given when asked about debating her primary opponent, Tim Wu, a Columbia professor.

Hochul has traveled across the state, starting with areas where she is not well known, meeting with local officials allied with the governor.

Cuomo has done little to engage so far publicly when it comes to the primary challenge, but Hochul in recent days has stepped up her public appearances and is appearing in a TV commercial.

“I’m proud of my record, I’ve proud of what I’ve accomplished and that’s what I’m going to run on,” Cuomo said.

As for debating Teachout, NY1 and Time Warner Cable News have invited both Democratic tickets to televised forums, which Cuomo and Hochul never accepted (or publicly turned down, for that matter).

Asked if debating his opponent would be a service to democracy, Cuomo responded with a quip.

“I’ve been in many debates that I think were a disservice to democracy,” he said. “So anyone who says debates are a service to democracy, hasn’t watched all the debates I’ve been in.”

Cuomo, of course, may be recalling the 2010 gubernatorial debate that featured having candidate who achieved ballot status — a decision that his campaign supported. The event devolved into a circus-like farce.

There is seemingly little upside for Cuomo to participate in a debate with Teachout, whose status would only be raised by a one-on-one event with the better-known and better-funded incumbent governor.

Cuomo, too, was unconcerned as to whether Democratic voters will have enough information before heading to the polls next week.

“They should read The Daily News editorial,” he advised, referring to the paper’s endorsement in the primary.
