Trump Running for NY Governor?

ABC News(NEW YORK) -- If the thought of President Trump doesn't make you swoon, how does Gov. Trump grab you?

New York Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis told Politico that billionaire reality TV host Donald Trump might be thinking about running for governor of the Empire State in 2014.

Malliotakis said she got the impression after Trump met with her and other lawmakers on Wednesday, adding that Trump is "certainly considering it."

Presumably, if he were to run, Trump would seek the GOP nomination to face Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo next November.

However, Trump already said in an October appearance on CBS' Late Show with David Letterman that "I’m really definitely not [running for governor]."

The real estate mogul was said to be considering a run for the White House in 2012 but decided the time wasn't right.
