Donald Trump Jr., eldest son of President Donald Trump, said he is interested in running for office, such as governor of New York.

Trump, Jr., who actively campaigned for his father, made the announcement at a Tuesday meeting of a gun club in Hicksville on Long Island.

A guest at the event said Trump, Jr. said he didn't want to be "one of 100 senators, nor a member of Congress," and that a run for NYC mayor would be less interesting to him than a gubernatorial run, according to Page Six .

Gov. Andrew Cuomo is up for re-election in 2018. Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino, Cuomo's Republican opponent in 2014, and Dutchess County Executive Marcus Molinaro are reportedly considering running against Cuomo.

President Trump, who owns an estate in Bedford, also owns Trump National Golf Club Hudson Valley in Stormville and Trump National Westchester in Briarcliff Manor.

The Trump name also adorns Trump Tower At City Center in White Plains, Trump Plaza in New Rochelle, Trump Park Residences in Yorktown and the Donald J. Trump State Park on the Westchester/Putnam border.
