Gov. Cuomo is downplaying rumors of his desire to run for president in 2016.

A New York Post article Monday morning said that Cuomo has told close associates that he won't run if Hillary Clinton decides to run.

However, on a radio talk show Monday morning, the governor dismissed all talk of a White House run.

"There is no truth to the assertion that I'm talking presidential politics and strategy and what Hillary Clinton should or shouldn't do or what I'm doing presidentially. The only discussion I'm the extent I'm focusing on politics, it's my race next year."

Governor Cuomo is up for reelection next year.
