Democrat Andrew Cuomo campaigned Sunday with his rival in the 2002 governor’s race, H. Carl McCall, the former state comptroller, prompting a harsh response from Republican contender Carl Paladino.

McCall was the only African American to hold a statewide office in New York before David Paterson became governor in 2008, and McCall remains the only black politician elected statewide. He retired from politics after losing the governor’s race to George Pataki eight years ago.
