ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) -- Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Monday that he's not talking about running for the Democratic nomination for president in 2016 and he's not waiting to see if Hillary Clinton runs.
Over his first two years as governor, Cuomo has repeatedly refused to talk publicly about running for president despite prompting by supporters. He has said such talk would hurt his ability to govern and would create a distraction, as it did for his father, Mario Cuomo, when he was governor.
But Andrew Cuomo has never ruled out a run for president in 2016.
Amid the speculation, HarperCollins announced Monday it had acquired rights to an untitled book by Cuomo, to be published next year, about his life and the "profound moments" of his first term in the governor's office.
