Bill de Blasio is one of most unpopular mayors of New York City in years. Yet he now says he won’t rule out a run for governor of New York.
There are some people who seem almost addicted to holding public office no matter how much people don’t like them.
Bill de Blasio’s 2020 run for president should have given him a clue, but somehow he missed it.
FOX News reports:
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio doesn’t rule out running for governor
Widely panned outgoing New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio did not rule out a run for the Empire State governorship following former Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s disgraced departure.
During a Friday interview with MSNBC’s Morning Joe, the Big Apple mayor announced that he was considering a gubernatorial run for New York.
Host Willie Geist cited recent reports of de Blasio getting a temperature read from labor unions and asked the mayor point-blank if he is considering a run for governor.
De Blasio noted that he and Gov. Kathy Hochul “respect” and “like” one another, but that the “politics” in the 2022 New York gubernatorial race was “a whole other world.”
“I believe in public service, I’ve done it my whole life,” de Blasio said. “I want to keep working on crucial issues and causes particularly care about things like education for our kids. … So we’ll see what the future brings.”
People are not excited about this idea.
This can never ever happen. https://t.co/5wsQLzf59d

DeBlasio can't handle a city, and his own daughter got arrested while she partook in a violent protest against him and the NYPD. But he wants to run for state governor. 🙄🙄🙄 https://t.co/htXd7OELPG

Bill de Blasio should run for Governor for no other reason than it will give him a chance to see how much all of New York truly despises him. https://t.co/QGjajK4PbY
