Early Commentaries about Mario

We’ve broadcast many editorials and commentaries about Mario on WVOX. This was the very first one, on June 22, 1982.1 called it “Reality with a Red Rose.”

In 1982 the race for governor of New York was wide open. Hugh Carey was not seeking reelection, and Mario M. Cuomo, the articulate, graceful lieutenant governor, decided to make the run, as did Edward I. Koch, who had beaten Cuomo five years earlier to become mayor of New York City. This set up a bruising primary battle within the Democratic Party.

But first came the state convention in June of 1982, at which the party regulars and the Democratic establishment regulars backed Koch. But Cuomo won enough votes to force that historic primary.

Our thoughts the first week of summer are upstate in Syracuse,
where Mario Cuomo fights for his political life and for the soul
of the Democratic Party. In this task, he will come up against
Edward Irving Koch, who is the mayor of New York. The bosses
and elders of the Democratic Party are almost certain to
designate Koch to run for governor. He is colorful, a media event,
a winner as they see it, and he is quick, diverting, and funny.
