Go again? Cuomo suggests he’s considering a fourth term

Does Gov. Andrew Cuomo have his sights set on a fourth term?

He hinted at doing so in a radio interview on Friday morning after he was asked if his March fundraiser was meant to raise money for a presidential campaign, which he has shown little interest.

Cuomo said the money was being raised for a state campaign and with state limits, which are higher than the federal campaign caps.

“It’s state money raised for a re-election, so yes,” he said on WCNY’s The Capitol Pressroom

So does this mean he’s seeking a fourth term?

“I did a fundraiser for a political committee that would fund my re-election effort,” he said.

A fourth term for the governor would surpass his father’s time in office and tie Republican Nelson Rockefeller, who resigned a year before his final term concluded.

First elected in 2011, Cuomo is currently the longest serving governor in the country. He was re-elected last year, defeating Republican Marc Molinaro.
