‘Worst Mayor’ in NYC History Contemplating Run for Congress

‘Worst Mayor’ in NYC History Contemplating Run for Congress

February 3, 2022

Breitbart News reports that former New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is reportedly readying himself for a run at a U.S. House seat just weeks after leaving his former post.

Both the New York Post and Politico cited people with insight into the former mayor’s thinking Wednesday, claiming de Blasio is eyeing a run in New York’s 11th Congressional District after redistricting expanded it to include Park Slope, where the aspiring Democrat Congressman lives.

The speculation seems to affirm de Blasio’s comments last month when he said he might be stepping down after two divisive terms in office but he has no intention of abandoning personal political ambitions.

Any such run would mean facing off against former Democrat Rep. Max Rose, who is vying for his old seat after losing to sitting Rep. Nicole Malliotakis (R) in 2020. Rose released an ad in 2020 in which he declared that “Bill de Blasio is the worst mayor in the history of New York City.”
