New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who announced his retirement earlier this month, said Monday in his final address that "intense political pressure and media frenzy" caused a rush to judgment amid sexual harassment allegations. 

Also on Monday, Cuomo aide Melissa DeRosa confirmed that the 63-year-old Democrat, “has no interest in running for office again” after serving as the governor for 10 years. New York will have a gubernatorial election in November 2022.

“Between [his time as Housing and Urban Development secretary], [New York attorney general and] Governor, Andrew Cuomo has spent nearly 25 years in public service. And the way he does it, it’s 24 hours a day, 7 days a week,” DeRosa said in a statement

“He looks forward to spending time with his family and has a lot of fishing to catch up on. He is exploring a number of options but has no interest in running for office again.”

An impeachment investigation is expected to still go through stemming from the sexual harassment allegations.

Cuomo resigned on Aug. 10. He said that the best way he can help New York is to "step aside and let government get back to governing."

He has denied the allegations made against him. "In my mind, I’ve never crossed the line with anyone, but I didn’t realize the extent to which the line has been redrawn," Cuomo said when he announced his resignation.

“There are generational and cultural shifts that I just didn’t fully appreciate, and I should have no excuses.”

Cuomo will be replaced by Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul. A private ceremony will take place after midnight on Tuesday, where she will be sworn in as New York's first female governor.
