Asked Wednesday in a conference call with reporters if he thought the mayor, a Democratic rival, was playing a role in Nixon's potential bid, Cuomo remarked: "I think it was probably either the mayor of NY or Vladimir Putin ..."

Local New York TV station NY1 reports that Nixon has already begun assembling a campaign team, including two unnamed staff members who have worked with former New York mayor Bill de Blasio.

Sources say Rebecca Katz and Bill Hyers, two veterans of Mayor Bill de Blasio's first campaign for mayor, are expected to play a major role.

Actress Cynthia Nixon, best known for her role on the TV series "Sex and the City", is considering whether to run for governor of NY.

Nixon is one of at least three Democrats considering a challenge against Cuomo, who is seeking a third term in November and is a potential 2020 presidential candidate.
