Gov. Andrew Cuomo said in a radio interview today that he will stump for President Barack Obama in other states. Cuomo has been rather low key when it comes to the presidential election and that may be because his intentions regarding 2016 are under the focus of much discussion. 

“They’ve asked me to do surrogate work in other states, I’ll do whatever they ask me to do,” Cuomo said. But added: 

I’m very aware of that for the simple reason that it hurts me as governor,” he said. “If you politicize me, you cast aspersion on my motivations and intent, you suggest I have my own political agenda for doing things, you’re going to hurt my capacity and ability to serve as governor. I just won’t allow that to happen.
