He just said if NY wants to vote the way THEY want to vote, it's their right.
However, he HAS in the past REPRESENTED a state based soley on what they wanted, or so he claims, as RP pointed out in the debate.

RP's district knows him and they like what he stands for. Santy's people don't know him and don't know what to expect of him.
