Political analyst and former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown Jr. sparked the talk in his column for the San Francisco Examiner, and reported by the New York Post.
"He's a big name, a big-state governor,” wrote Brown. “And a Democrat who is taking on the issue of pubic-employee salaries and pensions. Plus, he looks good.”
Cuomo, who denies any such move, has received national notice for passing a state budget that resolved a deficit of $10 billion without having to raise taxes, and for confronting public-employee unions.
