‘Early Show’ casts vote for pols Cuomo, Kemp

Former gov., congressman to comment on Campaign 2000

Former New York governor Mario Cuomo and former New York congressman Jack Kemp have been named political contributors to CBS News’ “The Early Show,” Steve Friedman, the program’s senior exec producer announced Wednesday.

“The addition of Mario Cuomo and Jack Kemp to ‘The Early Show’ team demonstrates our commitment to provide viewers with insightful and in-depth coverage of Campaign 2000. Cuomo and Kemp are two accomplished politicians who will offer viewers an insider’s point of view on the issues, the candidates and the campaigns,” Friedman said.

Prior to joining the law firm of Willkie Farr & Gallagher in 1995, Cuomo was the longest-serving Democratic governor (1983-95) in New York state’s modern history.

Kemp, who serves as co-director of Empower America, a public policy and advocacy organization he co-founded in 1993, received the Republican Party’s nomination for Vice President in August 1996. Prior to serving for four years as the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development during the Bush administration (1989-93), Kemp represented the Buffalo area and western New York for 18 years in the U.S.. House of Representatives.
