Gov. Cuomo says he was planning to attend Joe Biden’s inauguration on Wednesday, but he has decided to stay home.

“There have been reports from law enforcement sources that there is talk about doing demonstrations at state capitols. They have done an advisory that state capitols should be aware of potential demonstrations. We saw what happened in Washington a couple of weeks ago.  We have made preparations here,” the governor said. “We have police on standby. I think that my place is in New York State.”

Gov. Cuomo says he sent his good friend Joe Biden his best wishes, and will continue to work closely with the president-elect’s team in Washington.
