Fresh off his victory of passing same sex marriage, Governor Andrew Cuomo said he's concentrating on his job as governor but won't rule out a run for the White House in 2016.
Initially Cuomo dismissed talk of a run 2016 run as 'silly.'
It's not about 2016. It's about the power of the passage of marriage equality,
Cuomo said in his first interview on an Albany-area radio station.
However when he was told he was ruling out a presidential run all together Cuomo signaled a change of heart.
I'm not going to engage in this conversation or fuel this speculation.
Cuomo said there is ton of work to do, in the Capitol after his first legislative session where he was able to get a property tax cap, ethics reform and a state budget that avoided tax hikes passed.
On Sunday, two million turned out for one of the largest gay pride parades, held in central Manhattan, rejoicing at the legalization of same-sex marriage in New York State.
Along the parade route revelers held signings that read Thank you Governor Cuomo.
The historic vote 33-29 vote by the New York senate became the central tenet of the parade as an estimated 2 million people took to the streets to watch the celebration down 5th Avenue to the site of the beginning of the gay rights movement 'The Stonewall Inn'.
Asked if Governor Cuomo should make a White House run in 2016, Duane said I'd be happy to let him go but he has more to do.
