WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- Gov. Andrew Cuomo did not respond to an invitation by media outlet New York 1 to debate Democratic primary opponent Zephyr Teachout, according to captialnewyork.com.

The cable television station asked both candidates to respond by 7 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 28, but  Cuomo declined to offer any comment, capitalnewyork.com reported.

Teachout's camp says they hope to be able to use the Tuesday airtime offered by New York 1 regardless of Cuomo's participation, capitalnewyork.com said.
