Governor Cuomo announces resignation

On Tuesday morning during a live briefing Governor Andrew Cuomo announced that he will be resigning as New York State Governor.

"And I think that given the circumstances the best way I can help now is if I step aside and let government get back to government, and therefore that is what I'll do, because I work for you, and doing the right thing, is doing the right thing for you," Cuomo said.

This comes as Gov. Cuomo is dealing with allegations of sexual harassment.

Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul, a Democrat, will serve the rest of his term, and will be the state's first female governor.

August 24 will be Governor Cuomo’s official last day in office.
