A New York Daily News Exclusive

ALBANY — With House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi expected by his side, Gov. Cuomo on Tuesday is set to launch a “New York Fights Back” campaign designed to help the Democrats win a House majority.

The effort seeks to raise several million dollars to unseat six New York House Republicans, sources with knowledge of the plan said.

The six GOPers being targeted are Lee Zeldin (Suffolk County), John Faso (Columbia County), Elise Stefanik (Essex County in the Adirondacks), Claudia Tenney (Oneida County), Tom Reed (Steuben County in the Southern Tier) and Chris Collins (Erie County).

It’s the first time Cuomo, who is up for reelection in 2018 and has been mentioned as a possible 2020 presidential candidate, is actively involving himself in the effort to flip control of the House.
