De Blasio May Be Running For President in 2020

The New York Post reports:

Mayor de Blasio is putting out feelers to run for president, spreading whispers that Bernie Sanders, 75, and Elizabeth Warren, 68, are too old, sources say.

De Blasio, 56, will claim he’s the rightful standard bearer for the progressive wing of the Democratic party.

“He thinks he’s going to coast to re-election victory,” one Dem told me. “His people are sending out overtures asking where he should go next and whom he should meet on a national level.”

His jockeying could turn New York into a circular firing squad with Gov. Cuomo obviously poised to run; plus Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, who has been relentlessly raising money this summer; plus State AG Eric Schneiderman, who has friends in Hollywood, where Norman Lear has hosted fund-raisers for him.

De Blasio — who goes the extra mile to please his campaign donors and is richly rewarded for his service — was recently granted $2.57 million in city matching funds for his re-election. Whatever he doesn’t spend on the mayoral race can be rolled over to the coffers for his presidential campaign.

“The rumor is, he is setting up fund-raisers across the country after the election,” a veteran political consultant told me.

“De Blasio is putting all his chips on the 2020 race,” observed one longtime pol-watcher. “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.”
