Hillary Clinton Stumps for Cuomo on Campaign Trail

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is supporting Gov. Cuomo for a second term.

Clinton appeared at a Manhattan rally Thursday with Cuomo and the Democratic lieutenant governor candidate, Kathy Hochul.

Clinton said Cuomo is the "right leader at the right time."

The rally was run by the Woman's Equality Party, a political organization founded by Cuomo.

Clinton is considered the presumptive front runner for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination if she decides to run.

Cuomo has also been touted as a potential candidate but is unlikely to mount a bid if Clinton runs.

Cuomo is facing Republican Rob Astorino, the Westchester County executive, in the Nov. 4 general election.
