Gov. Andrew Cuomo will not endorse in the four-way race for the 60th Senate district citing Democrat Marc Panepinto’s opposition to the SAFE Act, the governor’s signature gun control law of 2013.

Cuomo on Monday is criss-crossing the state in a final push for his re-election campaign.

Speaking at the Ancient Order of Hibernians hall in Albany this afternoon, Cuomo said it was imperative that Democrats gain full control of the state Senate in order to pass the public financing of political campaigns, strengthen abortion laws and approve the DREAM Act, which provides tuition assistance to undocumented immigrants.

Nevertheless, Cuomo has not endorsed in the 60th Senate district, where Sen. Mark Grisanti, a Republican, lost his GOP primary in September.

Grisanti is the last sitting Republican in the state Senate to have supported the legalization of same-sex marriage, and he also backed Cuomo’s gun control law.

Cuomo today acknowledged Grisanti took a tough vote on the marriage law, but nonetheless said he’s staying out of the race.

Cuomo said he cannot support a Democrat who doesn’t back “sensible gun control.”

Panepinto has said he doesn’t support the law, but isn’t opposed to gun laws in general.

The issues surrounding the 60th Senate district have put Cuomo in a bind.

In September, he did not rule out endorsing Grisanti after Kevin Stocker was victorious in that primary. But Democrats and liberals pressured Cuomo in May to back a full Democratic takeover of the chamber.

Even as Grisanti faces an uncertain path to re-election, the New York League of Conservation Voters has stepped in to support an independent expenditure campaign that’s being bankrolled by former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and the Independent Democratic Conference’s political action committee.

The IE campaign released a mailer and TV ad touting Grisanti last week that prominently features Cuomo.

Democrats are eyeing the Grisanti race, where the statewide teachers union has been especially aggressive, as a potential pick up tomorrow as three upstate Democratic lawmakers face a difficult re-election.
