ALBANY — Gov. Cuomo insisted Monday that rumors about his interest in becoming attorney general under a potential President Joe Biden are coming from those who want to get him “out of New York.”
In an interview on NBC’s “Today” show, the governor tamped down the idea of joining a future Biden administration, saying he remains solely focused on running the Empire State.
“I’m a New Yorker. I said I would serve as governor,” he said. “And those rumors … those are only from people who want to get me out of New York. I don’t know why, but that’s where that’s coming from.”
Cuomo’s comments come after Axios reported Sunday that he is on Biden’s short list for the top law enforcement spot.
