BREAKING: Ex-NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio declares Congressional bid

By 05/22/2022 2:13 PMNo CommentsBy YidInfo Staff

On Friday, former New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio revealed that he is running for Congress after months of speculation over where he’d next set his political sights.

Sources said de Blasio would throw his hat in the political battle for New York’s 10th congressional district.

“The polls show the people are hurting, they need help, they need help fast, and they need leaders who can get them help now, and I know how to do it,” de Blasio said.

“I do know how to do it from years of serving the people of this city, so today I am declaring my candidacy for Congress,” de Blasio added.

The decision to run in Congress also comes after de Blasio for months weighed — but ultimately ditched — plans to run for governor and a different congressional district.

Veteran Rep. Jerry Nadler currently represents the 10th district.

Sources said the other potential contenders in the district are State Sen. Brad Hoylman, City Councilwoman Carlina Rivera, former City Councilman David Yassky, and several State Assembly members, including Robert Carroll and Jo Anne Simon, and Yuh-Line Niou.
