Forget City Hall. Don Jr. wants to be governor

“Going back to doing deals is boring after 18 months. The politics bug bit me.”

Donald Trump Jr.’s got a fever, and the only prescription is the top job in Albany.

At a gun club in Hicksville, N.Y., Trump hinted he might run for governor sometime in the future, according to the New York Post. Though he indicated back in July that he wouldn’t rule out running for mayor, he told members of the F6 Labs gun club that he wasn’t as interested in City Hall. The Trump Organization TRData LogoTINY may have also lost some of its luster for the president’s oldest son.

“Going back to doing deals is boring after 18 months” Don. Jr. quipped. “The politics bug bit me.”

Gov. Andrew Cuomo is up for re-election in 2018, though he may have his sights set on the White House. It’s unclear when Don Jr. would potentially toss his hat into the ring, though a spokesperson for the Trump Organization said he has “no intention of running for political office at this time.” [NYP] — Kathryn Brenzel
