Read highlights from Day 8 on the road:
The "Drive for a New NY" campaign tour began Thursday with a stop at the Lewis County Fair, where he was met by a "throng of supporters" and local officials.
Cuomo also partook in the fair activities and checked out displays, picked up some maple syrup and bought ice cream for his daughters - Mariah, Cara and Michaela - and Cuomo's niece, Marianna, who has joined the family on the RV tour. Cuomo posed with the girls for a picture on the fair grounds.
At Cuomo's second stop in Watertown, he told the crowd of nearly 100 at the Italian-American Civic Association that a "fork in the road" has left the state with an uncertain future, unless it gets its ethics back on track.
"One person is not going to change Albany alone," Cuomo said. "Change is going to come to Albany when the people of the state stand up and demand change. Democracy works when the people are engaged. And I think the people of this state have to get organized, they have to get mobilized and they have to say: 'Enough is enough,' that they want a change and they want it now."
Republican Assemblywoman Dede Scozzafava endorsed Cuomo at the organizing event and said, “The most important election we have this year is to elect Andrew Cuomo Governor of the State of New York."
It was then on to Speculator, where Cuomo spoke to a crowd of supporters and officials gathered on the lawn of the Public Pavilion on the July late afternoon.
