Maybe Cuomo should read CNN’s own website: “Democrat Andrew Gillum’s breakthrough victory in the Florida primary this week made him the party’s third African-American nominee for governor in 2018.”

But we’ll guess CNN will stand by their reporting, insisting that “in a major state” makes Cuomo’s statement true.
