New York Gov. Cuomo is nearing the end of his first term in office, and given his pedigree (his father, Mario, served as New York governor from 1983 to 1994), it's inevitable that he's included in the 2016 speculation. Cuomo has been a relatively quiet figure on the national stage, with a marginal one-day appearance at the Democratic National Convention and his stumping for Obama held off by Superstorm Sandy. But with high approval ratings in New York, and proven success in fundraising, he remains part of the presidential conversation.
