ALBANY - Speculation continues to grow that Gov. Andrew Cuomo may attempt a presidential run in 2016.

Political analysts say Cuomo was playing to a national audience last month when he gave his State of the State address. He touched on many issues often heard in presidential campaigns, ranging from gun control to minimum wage to women's rights.

Cuomo is riding a wave of popularity in New York. He has pleased many Republicans by getting a property tax cap approved and handling the state's budget crisis. The more liberal wing of his own Democratic Party was thrilled when he helped legalize same-sex marriage in New York.

But Cuomo repeatedly shrugs off any talk of presidential aspirations. His spokesperson declined to comment on all the presidential talk.
