Cuomo Plotting Against Caroline?

New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo has denied wanting Hillary Clinton's Senate seat, but behind the scenes, a different story is unfolding. According to The New York Times, Cuomo's aide Joseph Percoco has been urging labor leaders and upstate officials to oppose Caroline Kennedy. According to one prominent upstate Democrat who Percoco spoke with, Kennedy's name was never specifically mentioned: "[Percoco] said, 'Don't you think it should be someone who understands upstate? Don't you think it should be someone with experience? Shouldn't it be somebody who knows New York better?' " Cuomo's office denied any effort to undermine Kennedy.
