Former New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is despised by people on the right and the left. His two terms in office destroyed New York City as we knew it.
He has been out of office for less than six months and yet he is now already running for office again, this time in Congress.
There are certain people in the country who are seemingly addicted to running for office and de Blasio is one of them.
Doesn’t he have anything better to do?
FOX News reports:
Former NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio to run for Congress in newly drawn district
Former New York Mayor Bill de Blasio announced that he is running for Congress.
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.”
He had announced an exploratory committee just days before the Friday announcement.
See his tweet below:
Wherever I go, people ask: can things get better? I say from my heart: YES, but WE have to make them better. In our neighborhoods and our nation, the way to save our democracy is to be part of it. So as I declare my candidacy in #NY10 I ask you to join us: https://t.co/FaMeUQ5PES

The people of New York wouldn’t actually elect this guy again, would they?
