Gov. Andrew Cuomo, fueling speculation that he might run for president in 2020, will travel to California for fundraisers on Tuesday with lawyers, financiers and entertainment industry leaders.
The two-term governor, who is running for a third term next year, will start with a breakfast at a law firm in San Francisco, then head over in the evening to Beverly Hills for a reception. Tickets for the two events range in cost from $1,000 to $50,000.
The trip is not necessarily a sign of national aspirations, but it’s nonetheless heightening interest as Cuomo — who until recently rarely traveled out of state and avoided any speculation about presidential ambitions — appears to be elevating his national profile.
