ALBANY - Gov. Andrew Cuomo is blaming Republican "extremists" for punishing fellow party members who voted for his initiative to legalize gay marriage in New York.
Meanwhile, a third GOP senator, Roy McDonald in Saratoga County, is sweating out a long count of absentee ballots from the Sept. 13 primary. He's trailing Saratoga County Clerk Kathleen Marchione.
