Cuomo competing in rafting challenge

Albany, N.Y. (AP) -- New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has invited Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin to the Adirondacks to compete in a rafting race meant to highlight the area's recreational opportunities.

Sunday's event is Cuomo's second "Adirondack Challenge" near Indian Lake. Last year's competition saw Cuomo's team beat a raft captained by former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg.

The competition may be tougher this year. Shumlin, a Democrat, enjoys running, hiking, skiing, fishing and hunting, according to his state website.

Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver, Albany Mayor Kathy Sheehan and several other local and state officials are participating as well. The event will also feature opportunities for fishing, paddle boarding, canoeing and a motorcycle ride.

Cuomo's raft team will include his girlfriend, Sandra Lee, and his daughters.
