Democrat Joe Biden might be considering New York Governor Andrew Cuomo to lead his Justice Department if elected president.

Axios reports aides at the National Governors Association, which Cuomo chairs, are already looking into contingencies for replacing him if he takes the job as Attorney General.

Cuomo brushed off the idea Monday, saying he’ll stay on as governor, but will help Biden in any way he can.

Cuomo served as New York Attorney General from 2007 to 2010, and was President Bill Clinton’s secretary of Housing and Urban Development.
