New York Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a potential candidate for president in 2016, offered a non-committal response as to whether he backs Hillary Clinton for president.

Fred Dicker on Talk 1300 radio in Albany, N.Y., first asked Cuomo Monday about reports that the Democratic Party would line up behind Clinton, The New York Observer reports.

Cuomo’s response: “That’s a long way away. We just elected a president. . . . There’s no doubt that she’s incredibly popular, she’s got incredible support. . . . She’s going to have to make her decision.”

Then Dicker asked Cuomo if he would support Clinton. He replied, “Oh it’s a long way away. Whoever’s running, are you [Dicker] running? Is somebody else running? We have to assess all the candidates.”

As for how she would fare against a Republican, former GOP candidate Newt Gingrich told NBC’s “Meet the Press” Sunday that if the election was held now, Clinton would be unbeatable.

“If their competitor in ‘16 is going to be Hillary Clinton – supported by Bill Clinton and presumably a still-relatively-popular President Barack Obama – trying to win that will be truly the Super bowl,” the former House Speaker said. “And the Republican Party today is incapable of competing at that level.”
