U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand on Friday reaffirmed her support for Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s re-election, saying the guilty verdict in the Buffalo Billion bid rigging trial for former SUNY Polytechnic President Alain Kaloyeros is a symptom of corruption that impacts all levels of government.

“Obviously, corruption is in all institutions, not just the state government, but the federal government as well,” she said during a stop in Troy. “I think there are very saddening reports, but my job is to stop corruption where I can in Congress.”

As for supporting the governor’s re-election, she said, “No, it doesn’t change my endorsement.”

Cuomo is seeking a third term this fall and faces Cynthia Nixon, an education advocate and actress, in a Sept. 13 primary.

Gillibrand is also running for re-election this year and faces Republican Chele Farley.
