In this Saturday, April 15, 2017, photo, cars pass LaGuardia Community College in New York, where new legislation would allow some students to attend tuition-free. Some higher education experts question whether New York’s first-in-the nation free college tuition plan should be a model for other states. The plan would cover tuition at public colleges for students whose families earn $125,000 or less. But there are questions whether more should be done for the poorest students, and to pay for the many college costs beyond tuition. (AP Photo/Frank Franklin II)

FILE - In this April 10, 2017, file photo, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo signs new legislation for free state college tuition and juvenile justice reform, during a signing ceremony in New York. Even as higher education experts applaud the concept, they question some of the fine print of New York's plan and whether it is indeed a model that should be replicated elsewhere. New York's plan would cover in-state public college tuition for full-time students whose families earn $125,000 or less. But there are questions whether more should be done for the poorest students, and to pay for the many college costs beyond tuition. (AP Photo/Bebeto Matthews, File)

In this April 13, 2017 photo, people walk near the main entrance to the Borough of Manhattan Community College in New York, where new legislation would allow some students to attend tuition-free. New York's plan would cover in-state public college tuition for full-time students whose families earn $125,000 or less. Some experts are concerned that the way the plan is set up, it would actually do little to help the neediest students, whose tuition is already covered by other aid. They also question that the plain doesn't address the many other college costs beyond tuition. (AP Photo/Bebeto Matthews)

Andrew Cuomo listens at LaGuardia Community College in the Queens borough of New York, where Clinton joined Cuomo for a ceremonial signing of the state's new free tuition bill. It's the hope of proponents such as Bernie Sanders and Clinton, who made debt-free college a key talking point in their Democratic presidential campaigns, that New York's first-in-the-nation free tuition program for middle-class students will spread to other states. And that's the prediction of Cuomo, its main champion, who called the plan a "model for the nation." (Darren McGee/Office of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo via AP, File)

Bernie Sanders wave at the audience as they arrive onstage at an event at LaGuardia Community College, in New York for the announcement of Cuomo's proposal for free tuition at state colleges. Democrats still smarting from Hillary Clinton's presidential loss are already looking for a new standard bearer for 2020. And some observers say Cuomo is already acting like it, increasingly positioning himself with party leaders, aiming his message at middle-class angst and touting measures such as free tuition as an example of the kind of big ideas he can accomplish.
