Cuomo's A 'Thug, Bully, Blackmailer,' Says NY Congressman

One of the most prominent U.S. congressmen in New York is no fan of Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a New Castle resident.

Republican Rep. Chris Collins, who represents the 27th Congressional District, called Cuomo a "thug, bully, blackmailer and extortionist" in an interview with the Daily News on Thursday.

On Tuesday, Cuomo unveiled a "New York Fights Back" campaign alongside House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi against six Republican representatives, including John Faso, who represents East Dutchess.

Collins said Cuomo's opposition would energize his district.

Collins' district heavily supported Donald Trump in November's presidential election. Collins was the first congressman to endorse Donald Trump for president.
