Governor Andrew Cuomo was asked about the future of Lieutenant Governor Bob Duffy during an interview at the SUNY-IT campus outside Utica Thursday.
Some are speculating that Duffy has been offered a job leading the Rochester Business Alliance, and will take over for retiring Sandy Parker.
Cuomo says in order to focus on governing, they're waiting for next year to talk politics and campaigns.
When asked if Duffy is being recruited for the job, Cuomo wouldn't say either way.
"He's done a fantastic job as Lieutenant Governor, but I don't want to get into the politics this year, that's next year," Cuomo said.
In August, Duffy told YNN he will remain on the ticket with Governor Andrew Cuomo for the 2014 election.
