Former New York City mayor Bill de Blasio teased his return to politics. News reports revealed de Blasio is seriously mulling running for News York’s 10th Congressional District.
The Daily Wire reports:
According to a Tuesday afternoon report from the New York Post, de Blasio told state Assemblyman Simcha Eichenstein (D-Borough Park) that “he is committed to running in the race.”
“Just when you thought he was out …ex-NYC Mayor @BilldeBlasio told a state lawmaker — who told The Post — he plans to run for New York’s newly drawn 10th Congressional district — the seat that’ll likely stretch from Lower Manhattan into Brooklyn,” The Post’s City Hall bureau chief tweeted along with the article.
“He’s in, he’s running – he’s calling people,” Eichenstein told the Post, adding that he had already lined up donors and was calling a list of other officials to let them know of his decision.
“Based on the conversation that I had with him earlier today, he is running for Congress in the new NY-10 congressional district,” Eichenstein added. “He called me earlier this afternoon. While I will keep our conversation private, I will confirm that we spoke for over 20 minutes about his decision to run for this district.”
It’s not clear when de Blasio will announce his new campaign.
