Gov. Andrew Cuomo over the weekend received some warm words from New York City Comptroller Scott Stringer.

Later today, he will be attending a roundtable discussion with U.S. Rep. Hakeem Jeffries.

Both Stringer and Jeffries just happen to be potential mayoral candidates and rivals to the incumbent, Bill de Blasio.

Stringer on Sunday singled out Cuomo for praise during an event hosted by Sen. Adriano Espaillat.

“Governor, it’s been so good having you in New York City, protecting all of us,” Stringer said.

Cuomo, of course, has spent the last several days deploying state officials to help manage the outbreak of Legionnaires’ disease in the Bronx, which is now believed to be contained.

But Cuomo’s work on responding to the outbreak has also led to him to him Bigfooting de Blasio, most notably the governor calling in federal assistance after the mayor said he wouldn’t (Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz called for the Centers for Disease Control and blasted the mayor over the lack of CDC aid).

De Blasio, of course, began the summer criticizing the governor for seemingly undermining the city’s agenda in Albany during the legislative session and accused him of siding of Senate Republicans in the closed-door negotiations.
