Syracuse Mayor Stephanie Miner, who warred very publicly with Gov. Andrew Cuomo until stepping down in April from the post of state Democratic Party co-chair to which he appointed her, says she and the governor have settled their differences in advance of next week’s primary.

I asked Miner during a CapTon interview last night whether she is supporting Cuomo’s re-election campaign in the face of a spirited challenge from his fellow Democrat, Zephyr Teachout, and she replied simply: “I am.”

“The governor called me today and we had a good discussion,” Miner revealed. “We have not always agreed, and my disagreements with him are a matter of public record.”

“We’ve talked about that and we also talked about our areas of agreement as well. When I resigned as chair of the party in April, I said then that I would support his campaign for re-election, and that I would work hard for him.”

I told Miner that Cuomo’s decision to reach out to her to smooth over any lingering tension between the two of them indicated to me that he truly is pulling out all the stops to create a united front heading into the election next Tuesday.

The governor clearly wants every last Democrat who isn’t supporting Teachout to publicly declare their fealty to him – especially the few who have been brave enough to question his policies over the past four years.

“No surprise,” Miner replied. “That’s what every successful politician does, and in fact, he is the one who told me that politics is about addition not subtraction.”

“So you want to go into Election Day having as many friends and allies and people supporting you as possible. That’s how you win.”

Miner said she doesn’t believe Cuomo will have any trouble defeating Teachout next week, and she believes his hand-picked running mate, former Rep. Kathy Hochul, will also emerge successful from her primary battle with Teachout’s LG pick, Columbia Law Prof. Tim Wu.

Miner won’t be around for the primary. She has been invited by the British government to accompany four other US mayors on a trip across the pond to discuss municipal finances, infrastructure and other urban issues.

Miner said she’s not quite sure why she was tapped to receive this all-expenses paid trip, but she’s not one to look a gift horse in the mouth.

She has already cast her vote in the Sept. 9 primary via absentee ballot, and though I didn’t ask her to reveal who she voted for (that would be violating the sanctity of the secret ballot), it seems a safe bet, given her endorsement, who she choose in the governor’s race.
