NEW YORK (AP) - Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo wasted no time linking Republican challenger Marc Molinaro to the policies of President Donald Trump in the only debate between the gubernatorial candidates before next month's general election.
    
Cuomo, seeking a third term, on Tuesday repeatedly connected Molinaro, the Dutchess County executive, to Trump. He called them both "extreme" and says their policies are "reprehensible."
    
Molinaro reiterated his criticism of Cuomo for his handling of the state's economy, saying he let state spending increase. He also criticized his administration for corruption.
    
Tuesday's debate at the CBS Broadcast Center in New York City was to be broadcast at 7 p.m. on CBS affiliates around the state -- and the CW here in Albany.
    
It didn't include the three third-party candidates: Libertarian Larry Sharpe, Green Party nominee Howie Hawkins and independent ex-Syracuse Mayor Stephanie Miner.
