Washington meetings leave Cuomo encouraged on storm aid

Washington (CNN) - Monday's meetings in Washington left Gov. Andrew Cuomo of New York "optimistic" that lawmakers, currently sharply divided over a deal to avert massive spending cuts and tax hikes, will come together to approve billions to aid the recovery from Sandy, the superstorm which hit over a month ago.

Standing with members of his delegation after meeting with leaders on Capitol Hill and at the White House, Cuomo said House Speaker John Boehner "wants to be supportive" and said their discussion did not delve into some details, such as whether Republicans would require an emergency appropriations measure to include spending offsets from other pockets in the budget.

Cuomo announces special election for New York's 26th

(CNN) – New York Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo announced Wednesday that a special election for the state's 26th Congressional District will be held on May 24.

The seat was vacated when Republican Rep. Chris Lee abruptly resigned last month, after the website Gawker published an item reporting he corresponded with a woman who posted a Craigslist ad and Lee allegedly sent her a bare-chested photo of himself. Lee, who is married and has a son, was first elected to Congress in 2008. He won re-election last November.
