Zuckerman, 72, would run as a Republican or independent to avoid a costly primary battle against Gillibrand, a Democrat, reports the Times. The billionaire real estate mogul would try to appeal to voters as a political outsider and savvy businessman in a time of economic uncertainty.

Gillibrand may face a primary challenge from former Tennessee Rep. Harold E. Ford Jr.
