A published report says Governor Andrew Cuomo is taking steps to launch a presidential bid.

The “New York Post” reports that Cuomo has hired a pair of high-profile Florida fundraisers, including a Hillary Clinton moneyman, to help plan events in the swing state.

Analysts say such hiring of out-of-state fundraising people is a big first step for a run.

Recently Cuomo has flexed his political muscle outside of New York State including a trip to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
