Gov. Andrew Cuomo — perhaps wisely, but to the disappointed of a few reporters — didn’t bite when asked about Donald Trump potential run for governor of New York next year.

“Oh, I don’t know. We have plenty of time for politics,” Cuomo said. “I’m thinking more about the State of the State and the budget.”

Trump met with Republican lawmakers and political consultant Michael Caputo earlier this month and emerged to not rule out a run for governor against Cuomo.

The state Republican Party, including Chairman Ed Cox, has been eagerly talking up Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino, while Buffalo businessman Carl Paladino has not ruled out a run on the Conservative Party line. Assemblyman Steve McLaughlin, a frequent Cuomo critic, is also considering a run for governor as well.

Regardless of who his Republican opponent is come 2014, expect to hear that refrain a lot from Cuomo whenever he’s asked a question deemed “political.”
