New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo says 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.
Cuomo said Monday on public radio's "Capitol Pressroom" there is "no truth" to speculation that he is talking about presidential politics and strategy.
Cuomo says he's focused on his 2014 run for a second term as governor. He has never ruled out a run for president.
Clinton is often touted as a potential 2016 contender.
Cuomo has a campaign fund of more than $20 million and led New York's effort in legalizing same-sex marriage in 2011. This year, he pushed through the nation's first gun-control law after the Newtown, Conn., tragedy. His poll numbers have recently fallen from record highs.
