...won’t vote for him anyway, right?It was a statement that spooked a number of tristate residents, left wondering what exactly it portended for the future. It caught the governor off guard.

The off-hand remark, followed by the tweet, followed by more off-hand remarks during a speech, followed by hours of breathless supposition, followed by deserved outrage, followed by tweets that walk back the whole damn thing.— David Gura 🏡 (@davidgura) March 29, 2020

That bars discrimination between residents of different states, underpinning the right of interstate travel. https://t.co/CCZx5cB2MZ— Neil MacFarquhar (@NeilMacFarquhar) March 29, 2020
