Andrew Cuomo Travels to California

The office of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has confirmed that the governor will be touring the state of California this week. On Tuesday, Mr. Cuomo is expected to attend a fundraiser that will be attended by leaders from the entertainment industry, financers as well as lawyers. This is a decision that further fuels speculations that the New York governor is thinking about a possible presidential run. While he has been the governor of New York for two terms, experts say that he will run for a third term in 2018. His tour in California is expected to kick off at a law firm situated in San Francisco. According to sources close to the governor, they confirm that the breakfast will also be attended by Larry Baer who is the president of the Giants. At the end of the day, he is expected to take a short trip to Beverly Hills for a party that has been organized at the home of Jeff and Laura Shell. For starters, this is the home of Universal Films Entertainment Group chairman. The ceremony will be attended by top executives from Hollywood. It has been revealed that the event has been organized with the help of the Motion Picture Association of America.

It has also been revealed that some of the people who will grace the event include Disney chief executive Bob Iger, Leslie Moonves who is the chief executive of CBS as well as the co-founder of DreamWorks Jeffrey Katzenberg. According to a top aide of the New York governor, a ticket to the event will cost approximately $1,000 to $5,000. However, when the governor’s office was contacted for a comment, the office could not respond. The Los Angeles Times reported that this was not the first trip to California by a Democratic governor. There are some governors who have resulted in establishing close ties with the entertainment industry. This trip further increases rumors and speculations that Mr. Cuomo is eying the Oval Office. For the last few months, the New York governor has rarely travelled out of state to cool these speculations. He recently traveled to Israel following the wave of anti-Semitism around the world. His trip was a show of solidarity. He also travelled to US Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico to assess the damages that had been caused by hurricanes. A close friend of Mr. Cuomo agreed that there were speculations out there. However, he said that only the governor could declare his intentions.
