From the Morning Memo:

Zephyr Teachout isn’t planning another run for governor, but does expect incumbent Democrat Andrew Cuomo will face a primary challenge once again next year.

“I would be really surprised if there’s no primary,” Teachout said in a Capital Tonight interview on Tuesday. “My entire race three years ago was three months long… and in just three months we got nearly 40 percent of the vote.”

Teachout in 2014 challenged Cuomo from the left, mounting an unlikely bid for the party’s nomination with little name recognition.

She last year unsuccessfully sought a seat in the House of Representatives in the 19th congressional district.

But Teachout remains popular with the liberal advocacy wing of the Democratic Party. She won a post this week on the state Democratic Committee, giving a new role in what has traditionally been a top-down organization controlled by the governor.

In the interview, Teachout pointed to a vulnerability for Cuomo next year: The transit crisis, impacting commuters in what should be a geographic base for the party.

“There’s a sense that Andrew Cuomo has run on I’m the guy who gets things done but things aren’t getting done,” she said.

As for who would challenge Cuomo, Teachout said she has heard from a “handful of people” who are interested, but declined to say who.
