New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo downplayed rumors on Tuesday that he would run for the White House in 2020, simply responding "no" when asked by CNN's Chris Cuomo, his brother, if he intended to take the plunge.
Andrew Cuomo has been the subject of increasing speculation regarding the 2020 election as the coronavirus pandemic has continued. The governor has received praise for his handling of the disease's ravaging of his state, particularly his regular straightforward and unflinching news conferences.
President Trump has said that he "wouldn't mind" running against the governor in 2020, though he claimed that the governor would be a tougher candidate to beat than former Vice President Joe Biden.
