Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is waving off rumors that she is considering a run for governor of New York. And former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani says he hasn't decided whether he'll run.

Clinton tells ABC's "This Week" that she wants to put to rest speculation that she would seek the governorship of New York. She says she is committed to her duties as secretary of state.

Giuliani says he'll decide soon whether to make a bid for governor. A Republican presidential candidate last year, Giuliani says he isn't leaning one way or another.

New York's Democratic governor, David Paterson, is seeking another term. Attorney General Andrew Cuomo hasn't said whether he'll challenge Paterson for the Democratic nomination.
