Gov. Andrew Cuomo insisted in a radio interview on Friday that he wasn’t trying to weaken the labor-backed Working Families Party by forming the Women’s Equality Party.

Cuomo is urging voters to back him and his running mate, former Rep. Kathy Hochul, on the ballot line formed to promote the 10-point Women’s Equality Act, which has stalled in Albany over a provision designed to codify Roe v. Wade.

But with Cuomo’s focus on getting 50,000 votes for the new ballot line — thus giving the party automatic ballot status for the next election cycle through 2016 — concerns are being stoked the WFP could lose influence and its own ballot position, currently Row D.

Cuomo, in an interview on WNYC with Brian Lehrer, denied the ballot line was meant to rival the WFP, whose endorsement he had to fight for back in May.

“I think that’s really tortured analysis whoever gave that to you,” Cuomo said, adding, “I’m here to make social change, I’m here to pass the Women’s Equality Act.”

Nevertheless, Cuomo is pushing for the Women’s Equality Party in the final days of the campaign, with emails, mailers and a TV ad campaign promoting the newly formed ballot line.

At the same time, the governor and the WFP are currently feuding over his recent comments knocking the public education system as a “monopoly” and pledged to fight next year for more charter school protections.

Now, the WFP is calling on supporters to — ironically — back the governor on their ballot line as a way to rebuke him.

Cuomo in this morning’s interview insisted he wasn’t concerned with political insider debate over the ballot line and instead wanted to successfully push the women’s agenda next year.

“I would be less concerned and I am less concerned with the internal political machinations of who has political power and I’m more interested in social change, Brian, and I’m more interested in passing the Women’s Equality Act,” Cuomo said.

Cuomo introduced the women’s agenda in 2013, with provisions aimed at curbing domestic violence, pushing pay equity and curtailing human trafficking. But the omnibus version of the bill has stalled in the state Senate over the last two years with mostly Republicans opposing a measure aimed at strengthening abortion rights.

The governor insisted he planned on making the women’s agenda an election-year issue after it failed.

“I said that when it failed last year I would make a major issue out of it in this campaign,” Cuomo said.

The wedge issue is working: Cuomo has a wide lead over his Republican opponent, Rob Astorino, among women voters.
