This should terrify MAGA World:
Democrats are so convinced that New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo could be considered for Joe Biden’s attorney general that aides at the National Governors Association, which Cuomo chairs, are looking into contingencies for replacing him. Some Democratic donors in Cuomo’s orbit tell Axios that the governor is being pushed for the job and that Biden would consider him, based on their long friendship.
Why it matters: The AG would be among the most politically sensitive — and high-profile — jobs in a Biden administration. The Justice Department will face pressure to investigate Trump-era officials — and perhaps Trump himself — for wrongdoing in office. Cuomo’s team denies that the governor has any interest in serving in a potential Biden Cabinet. Cuomo, who previously served as New York’s AG, has a long history with Biden.
New York Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul would succeed Cuomo should he resign to join the Biden administration.
