Cuomo says NY and Israel have "special relationship"

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and top legislators are heading to Israel this week for a two-day visit to show "solidarity" during the country's conflict in Gaza.
 
Cuomo, Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver and Senate co-leaders Dean Skelos and Jeff Klein will travel to Israel on Tuesday. Cuomo announced the trip Sunday, saying the delegation would meet with Israeli leaders and visit residents affected by the fighting.
 
Cuomo says New York has a "special relationship" with Israel and that he's proud to be leading the bipartisan visit to "reaffirm our friendship and support."
 
Cuomo, Silver and Klein are Democrats. Skelos is a Republican.
 
Joining them will be guests including Cuomo's brother-in-law, designer Kenneth Cole, and publisher Mort Zuckerman.
