ALBANY, N.Y. (WTEN) — Gov. Andrew Cuomo is not interested in taking on the role of Attorney General if presidential candidate Joe Biden is elected.

Axios released an article saying that the governor is being looked at for the spot and that Biden would pick him based on their longtime friendship.

Officials from the governor’s office responded by saying that the governor is not interested in the spot. He is instead interested in running New York State.

“100% he’s made zero outreach, has had zero conversations about this and has made his desire to stay in New York clear as day and be governor as long as people want him.”
