ALBANY—Gov. Andrew Cuomo hasn't been out front advocating for the legalization of casinos, but says “you can't be any more linked to it than I am.”

”It was my proposal,” he told reporters after an economic development event in New York City.

“It's a different kind of campaign than a legislative campaign,” Cuomo said. “This is an electoral effort where people will vote. This is about television commercials, this is about direct mailings, and that's how this campaign is going to be run and won or lost. So, that's what I'm spending my time on. This is not about meeting with groups of 50 people, 75 people, and generating pressure on the Legislature.”

So far, for the record, we haven't seen any commercials.
