New York Gov.
Andrew Cuomo has announced he will run for reelection in 2018.
The announcement came in a speech at a fundraiser in Manhattan, the home of the city’s Democratic mayor.
Cuomo, who served in the Trump administration, was governor of New York from 2011 to 2015 and is considered a possible 2020 presidential candidate.
He is a former mayor of New London, Connecticut.
The speech was made during a fundraising event by the Clinton Foundation in which he also said he was “very grateful” for Hillary Clinton’s election as secretary of state and her nomination as the Democratic presidential nominee.
The Clinton Foundation has received millions of dollars from foreign governments in the past.
Cuom was a top surrogate for Hillary during the 2016 campaign.
He is running against Democratic Gov.
Alex Padilla in 2018, according to a report from Politico.
Democrats have also lined up to endorse the governor’s bid.
The governor has been a supporter of Sanders during the primary season, calling the Vermont senator a “true friend of the working class.”
