Former New York Gov. Mario Cuomo, left, with his son and now Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

The former governor of New York, Mario Cuomo, is dead at the age of 82, PPD confirms. Cuomo made his bones with a speech at the 1984 Democratic National Convention, during which he criticized then popular President Ronald Reagan.

“In fact, Mr. President, this is a nation — Mr. President you ought to know that this nation is more a ‘Tale of Two Cities’ than it is just a ‘Shining City on a Hill,’” Cuomo said in the 1984 address.

Cuomo, a son of an Italian immigrant and New York liberal, died of heart failure, from a condition he suffered from just after his son, Andrew Cuomo, won reelection in 2014.

He was considered a two-time leader for the Democratic presidential nomination but chose not to seek the White House bid.
