New York gubernatorial election, 1994

From dKosopedia

Wikipedia has an article on:

The Contenders

Incumbent Mario M. Cuomo, Democrat

George Pataki, Republican

The Significance

This race is probably the most effective at illustrating both the anti-incumbency movement in 1994, and the well-known Three Term Curse of New York State. Mario Cuomo was a three-term governor of New York seeking re-election to a fourth term; Pataki was a relatively unknown challenger. In addition, Cuomo had been considered as a possible Presidential candidate in 1988 and 1992, and was thus somewhat of a liberal icon. The Republican Revolution of 1994 had some gubernatorial coattails, and Pataki carried the largely Democratic state of New York.
