Gov. Andrew Cuomo in a radio interview Thursday said he is a “fan” of Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, insisting he was not endorsing any of the Democrats running or potentially running for the presidential nomination.

Cuomo had previously called former Vice President Joe Biden the Democrat with the most “credibility” and presents the “best case” among the field of potential candidates to run against President Donald Trump.

“My two cents, I think of all the names that are out there, I think Joe Biden has the best base,” Cuomo said in an interview on WAMC radio in Albany earlier this month. “I think Joe Biden brings most of the secret ingredient you need for a Democrat to win, which is credibility.”

Gillibrand, who worked for Cuomo as a top attorney at the Department of Housing and Urban Development, filed an exploratory committee this week.

“We’re personal friends for more years than I care to remember. I also know Joe Biden and what I said about him I believe,” Cuomo said in an interview with WNYC’s Brian Lehrer this morning. “There will be more people getting in the race, so it’s way to early to talk about who’s in, who’s out and preferences.”

Cuomo said his comments about Biden, whom he has had a long-standing relationship with, are “not mutually inconsistent” with Gillibrand’s candidacy.

“I haven’t endorsed anyone. What I said about Joe Biden was not an endorsement,” Cuomo said. “It was a statement of fact. Let’s see who gets into the race.”
