From the Morning Memo:

Gov. Andrew Cuomo this weekend received the endorsements of prominent Puerto Rican elected officials at the local, state and federal level.

Cuomo, who is seeking third term this year, received the nods from Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz, a top Cuomo ally who as once considered a challenger to Cuomo rival Mayor Bill de Blasio, as well as Reps. Nydia Velázquez, Jose Serrano and Assemblyman Marcos Crespo.

The endorsements came at the annual Somos El Futuro conference in Albany and pointed to Cuomo’s push to help storm-ravaged Puerto Rico last year.

“When Hurricane Maria struck its devastating path, it left a hole in the heart of New York because the people of Puerto Rico are our brothers and sisters. But we did what New York does when faced with tragedy and adversity – we stepped up to help those in need,” Cuomo said in a statement released by the state Democratic Committee.

“We will continue to stand with Puerto Rico and do everything in our power to ensure they have the resources they need to recover and rebuild stronger than ever before. I am truly honored to have earned the support of such dedicated leaders in New York’s Puerto Rican community, and look forward to building on the work we’ve started.”
