NY Gov. Cuomo on 2020 presidential run: ‘I am ruling it out’

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is again dismissing talk that he will run for president.

Asked about a possible presidential run on New York City public radio Tuesday, Cuomo said he is ruling out the idea.

The Democrat won a third term earlier this month and has repeatedly said he isn’t planning to run for the White House in 2020. Before the election he said only his own death would prevent him from finishing a third term as governor.

Cuomo’s repeated denials haven’t ended the speculation. The Associated Press reported last week that Cuomo has contacted some Democrats in Iowa, home to the influential Iowa Caucus. Cuomo dismissed the report as false.

Cuomo said Tuesday that Democrats need someone with both experience and credibility to beat President Donald Trump.
