The 2020 elections just got a little more intriguing, after reports confirmed that New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) is looking into a nomination with his name on it.
As stated, his campaign will focus on pursuing other progressives’ support, which would help him win. He plans to elaborate why he is the best choice for the seat. This comes at an interesting time period, since Sen. Bernie Sanders, 75, and Sen. Elizabeth Warren, 68, are over the age limit to be looking for the same seat.
“He thinks he’s the inheritor of the Warren and Sanders legacy,” a Democratic source, “but no one told Warren and Sanders they were dead.”
Aside from de Blasio, Gov. Andrew Cuomo, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, and state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman are all throwing their hats in the ring for the 2020 political party.
“He thinks he’s going to coast to re-election victory,” an insider told the Post. “His people are sending out overtures asking where he should go next and whom he should meet on a national level.”
In accordance with reports, de Blasio will risk potentially anything to enter this race and win. He was looking to impress the pocket-deep donors at the Germany G20 Summit, which explains a lot.
“That’s why, instead of staying in the city to comfort the children of assassinated police officer Miosotis Familia, he jetted to Germany to join the anti-Trump rioters who were smashing store windows,” the source finished.
