New York Governor says he doesn’t intend to head the US Justice Department if Biden wins

He wished victory in the election to Joseph Biden, whom he considers his “good friend,” and promised to do everything in his power to help the Democrat become President.

The American Governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo, has denied rumors that he might take the post of Minister of justice in the case of a victory on the candidate’s elections in presidents of the United States from Democrats Joseph Biden. Cuomo made the corresponding statement on Monday on NBC.

“I’m not interested in working in Washington,” Cuomo said when asked about the information provided earlier by the Axios portal. On Sunday, the publication’s website reported that the New York Governor is currently the favorite to head the Justice Department if Biden wins. The National Association of governors allegedly makes plans if Cuomo leaves the post of Chairman of this Association, the portal noted.

“I am a native of New York and have made a promise to serve as Governor. These rumors come from those who want me to leave New York,” the Governor said. At the same time, he wished victory in the election to Biden, whom he considers his “good friend,” and promised to do everything in his power to help the Democrat become President.

Axios noted that Biden and Cuomo share a long-standing friendship. They have known each other since the 1980s, and their friendship was strengthened during the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy in 2012. The former Vice-President of the United States also appreciates the Governor’s professional quality shown during the current pandemic coronavirus infection.

The upcoming November 3 General election in the United States will elect the President and Vice President, 35 senators, 435 members of the House of Representatives, 13 state and territory governors, and local governments. The current head of state, Republican Donald Trump, is fighting Biden for the presidency. The inauguration will take place on January 20, 2021.
