Former New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has announced he is running for Congress.

Fox News reports:

De Blasio announced Friday that he will be seeking the Democratic nomination for the newly drawn 10th Congressional District. Rep. Jerrold Nadler occupies the seat, but has announced his plans to vacate.

“I’m very proud of having led this city out of the worst of the COVID crisis,” de Blasio told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “I’m ready right now to serve and address the issues that are so deep in communities in Brooklyn and Manhattan, and I just wanted to come here, a place that I cherish, and with you who have been such good friends to tell you this is the next step and I want to serve the people of the community that is my home and that I love.”

Earlier this year, de Blasio turned down a run for New York governor, as he polled far behind Gov. Kathy Hochul in the Democratic primary.

De Blasio’s last years in office were controversial and fraught with contention on issues ranging from crime and law enforcement to his administration’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. He has been open about the bitter end of his tenure in office, claiming he made several mistakes that cost him his connection with voters.

People couldn’t wait to get rid of him as mayor and now he is going to run for
Congress to make things better of the country. Are all the people in New York
Loosing there minds. DE Blasio is the reason New York is in the state it is in.
He did nothing to correct it when he was in office. A congressman is suppose the
follow the wants of his constituents. He did not do that when he was mayor why should we think he will as congressman?
Absolutely no meaning choice for
the the inhabitants of New York. He opened the prisons of New York during the covid outbreak that is one of the reason for the escalating crime in
New York. The second is the useless
Soros backed Attorney Gemeral who
does not do her job putting criminals back on the streets instead of in prison
where they belong, too soft on crime.
People of New York use you head, think
before you vote, it is in your interest.
Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting better results.

De Blasio has no self respect – he’ll never respect citizens enough to make good changes – he’ll never change!
