Former Vice President Joe Biden’s reversal on the Hyde Amendment was the “right thing” to do, Gov. Andrew Cuomo in a radio interview on Friday said.

Biden, one of 23 Democratic candidates seeking the party’s presidential nomination, stirred controversy this week when he said he backed the provision, which bars federal funds for abortion.

He later reversed himself after criticism from fellow Democrats, including New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio.

“I think he was right to correct the position,” Cuomo said in an interview with WAMC radio. “If I read the reports correctly, and assuming the reports were correct, even when he first said it, he said it was important for low-income women to have access, because he supports Roe v. Wade and everyone should have access to Roe v. Wade.”

Cuomo is a prominent supporter of Biden’s presidential campaign. He has said several times that Biden is the most qualified candidate among the Democratic hopefuls to challenge President Donald Trump in 2020.

Cuomo, who this year signed a bill in New York that strengthens the state’s abortion laws, did not think Biden was hurt politically by the episode.

“I think he did the right thing in clarifying his position immediately,” he said. “I don’t think there was any net harm. He made a mistake.”
