NY Post: Cuomo Won’t Run For President If Clinton Does

ASSOCIATED PRESS

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) has conceded that he won’t run for President if Hillary Clinton decides to launch a campaign in 2016, New York Post columnist Fred Dicker reported on Monday. 

A Cuomo administration source told the columnist, “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.”

As the New York Times reported last month, supporters and donors are eagerly awaiting the former secretary of state’s decision. And some are urging her to make up her mind soon, in case another candidate, such as Vice President Joe Biden, enters the fray.
