Cuomo: I’ll Pass if Hillary Runs for White House

By Lisa Barron   |  

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has acknowledged that if Hillary Rodham Clinton makes a bid for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2016, he will pass on the race.

“The governor has told people in recent weeks that there’s not a chance for him to run if Hillary gets in the race because she’ll easily wrap up the Democratic nomination, a Cuomo administration source told the New York Post.

“He knows that and he accepts that, and so he won’t even be thinking at all in those terms,” continued the source, “unless Hillary decides not to run, which seems unlikely.”

In the meantime, Cuomo is concentrating on his reelection campaign next year, hoping to top his father Mario’s landslide victory in 1986, when he won more than 64 percent of the vote, according to the Post.

But the younger Cuomo’s popularity in the state has tumbled, it notes, with his recent political move to the left.
