After ruling out a gubernatorial bid, former NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio also says he will not run for Congress in the New York’s 11th Congressional District

Breaking News

After announcing last month that he will not run for governor, former New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced on Tuesday that he will not run for U.S. Congress in the Empire State’s 11th Congressional District.

“I’ve represented the neighborhoods of the 11th CD for years and I love the people who live here. It was gratifying to connect with community and elected leaders while I considered a run. I’m certain a progressive can win this seat and serve us in Washington,” de Blasio tweeted.

“Back in January, I made a decision to focus on advocating for policies that would continue to drive down income inequality in New York – one of my proudest achievements. I’m going to stick with that decision – it was the right one then and it remains so,” he added.

During his tenure as mayor of the Big Apple, de Blasio mounted a presidential bid during the Democratic primary in 2019, but he eventually dropped out later that same year.

“If we all got a dollar for every announcement de Blasio has made that he is not running for something, income inequality would be solved,” one person tweeted in response to the former mayor’s announcement that he will not seek the congressional seat.

“I’m very glad to see this disgusting opportunist Bill de Blasio realize that he’s totally unable to run for any political office because he is so thoroughly hated by everyone. This horrible man should NOT be allowed to have any future in politics,” someone else tweeted.
