As his campaign released a new TV ad featuring an endorsement from, literally, a Rockefeller Republican, Gov. Andrew Cuomo told reporters on Wednesday he plans to reach out to moderates in the GOP.

“I’m reaching out to Democrats, but I’m going to campaign the way I govern,” Cuomo said. “I’m also reaching out to moderate Republicans because my politics, my governing philosophy was fiscally responsible and socially progressive. That is what the overwhelming majority of New Yorkers are.”

Cuomo has worked well with Republicans in Albany over the last four years, winning measures on socially liberal provisions such as same-sex marriage and gun control, while being able to limit spending and create a cap on local property tax increases.

“When it comes to fiscal issues, you look at the way we’ve managed this state, we managed it a way that any Republican would be proud,” he said.

The governor, meanwhile, has sought to inoculate himself against charges Democrats spend and tax too much.

“That is 70 percent of New Yorkers,” Cuomo said. “So, Mr. Rockefeller’s support as a Republican is very important to me.”

Rockefeller has also been a generous campaign contributor for Cuomo, and has attended “Republicans For Cuomo” events.

And he pointedly took a swipe at Republican candidate Rob Astorino’s own record in Westchester County.

“Westchester was downgraded,” Cuomo said. “We were upgraded.”

He batted away questions about Astorino’s proposal for across-the-board tax cuts made today before a business group in New York City.

“That’s what we’ve done,” Cuomo said during a back-and-forth with a reporter when asked about the Astorino proposal. “Every New Yorker is paying a lower tax rate than the day I took office that’s called an across-the-board tax cut.”

Cuomo’s tax code changes in 2011 came as a surcharge on certain high-income earners was due to expire at the end of the year.

Rather than continue the current rates, Cuomo and state lawmakers agreed to changes that provided for high-income earners to not return to pre-2009 levels, essentially giving them a smaller tax cut than they were in line to receive had the state not acted.

The move helped cut into a budget deficit for the coming fiscal year. Cuomo’s office has previously referred to these changes as a tax increase.

His efforts to bring Republicans on board with his campaign comes after Cuomo faced a Democratic primary challenge from Zephyr Teachout, a Fordham Law School professor who criticized the governor’s economic policies as favoring the rich.

Teachout, combined with comedian and activist Randy Credico, received about 40 percent of the vote in the primary.

Since the primary, Cuomo has sought to shore up his support among the business community, appearing in person at the state Business Council’s annual meeting to tout his record on property taxes and the state budget.

Still, Cuomo faces questions over his support from the labor-aligned Working Families Party. In May, Cuomo agreed to backing their agenda, including a faster phase-in of the state’s minimum wage, when receiving their endorsement.

Cuomo said Republicans can still vote for him on the Democratic line or the Women’s Equality Party line if they’re uncomfortable with the WFP.
