Andrew Cuomo’s presidential ambitions have been a constant source of speculation since he was elected in 2010, but now several Democratic activists in early primary states tell Politico it’s already too late for the New York governor to run. While other potential candidates have been speaking, networking, and fundraising across the nation, Cuomo has avoided the national stage (possibly because he insists he isn’t running) and with only 1,065 days until the 2016 election, he doesn’t have time to make those connections. At the end, Cuomo’s 2016 campaign regretted spending so much time doing its job, rather than enjoying all the ridiculous speculation political life has to offer.
