Before I get into Italian slurs, I’m going to get into why Mario Cuomo never ran for president. Even though chances are had he ran, he probably would’ve won the Democratic nomination for president in 1988 or 1992. A big reason why Governor Cuomo never ran for president, or at least a big rumor why he didn’t run, had to do with his perceived connections with the Italian Mafia in New York. Especially in New York City and perhaps around New York State as well.
