From the Morning Memo:

Democratic Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone has released a robocall urging voters to re-elect Gov. Andrew Cuomo and support county comptroller candidate Jay Schneiderman.

“To continue the progress we’ve made, please vote to re-elect Gov. Andrew Cuomo and his entire team, including Jay Schneiderman, our Democratic candidate for county comptroller,” Bellone says.

Bellone points to Schneiderman’s record of avoiding tax increases and says he would be a “great partner” for me.

Bellone this year has stumped for several candidates running down ballot this year, including those for battleground House and state Senate races.

Suburban counties like Suffolk, as well as Nassau on Long Island and those in the Hudson Valley are considered key for statewide victories, making voter turnout all the more important.
