ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo only sees a re-election bid in his future amid suggestions he could be a possible White House candidate in 2020.

Cuomo told reporters Tuesday he is focused on his current job and still plans to run for a third term in 2018.

Cuomo is one of several prominent Democrats whose names have appeared on lists of possible presidential contenders.

Re-elected in 2014, he has already begun raising money for another race for governor in two years.

Cuomo has said he has "grave" disagreements with Republican President-elect Donald Trump but has vowed to work with the fellow New Yorker on issues affecting the state.

Cuomo was Secretary of Housing and Urban Development under President Bill Clinton.
