Bill de Blasio is officially running for Congress

NYP:

He’s really gonna do it.

Former Mayor Bill de Blasio announced Friday that he is running for Congress in a new district straddling Manhattan and Brooklyn. 

“I’m declaring my candidacy for Congress in the 10th Congressional District in New York,” the failed 2020 Democratic presidential candidate told MSNBC Friday morning.

“Polls show people are hurting, they need help, they need help fast, they need leaders that can actually get them help now,” de Blasio added. “I know how to do it from years of serving the people of this city.”

The 61-year-old faces a deep candidate field in the Aug. 23 primary as well as a deep political backlash months after concluding an eight-year mayoral tenure many consider the worst in New York’s history.

“BDB is political creepy. He’s the dude that won’t leave you alone at a party,” lefty activist Charles Khan tweeted Friday.

Friday’s announcement comes two days after the Post reported on de Blasio’s interest in the newly-created district that includes lower Manhattan, parts of Brownstone Brooklyn and Borough Park. He formed an exploratory committee on Wednesday.  read more

  1. He just wants to do for America, what he’s done to New York.

    “Polls show people are hurting, they need help, they need help fast, they need leaders that can actually get them help now,” de Blasio added. “I know how to do it from years of serving the people of this city.”

    To bad he’s part of the problem, not the solution.
    Campaign slogan, “Bend over America”.

  2. He’s not in it to win it. That would be icing on the cake. He’s in it for the campaign loot grift. Ask Evan McMullin about that.

  3. He will likely win in a landslide. Anyone with an IQ above room temperature left that shithole decades ago. Nothing but the dregs left.

  4. Guess there aren’t enough corrupt, low-life, scum-sucking, anti-American pieces of shit in Congress already?

    One more turd for the septic tank.

  5. He’s clearly got people who are able to shuffle campaign donations into private dollars. It’s the only possible reason he would consider running because he can’t win.

  6. Did his ugly dyke wife ever explain what happened to the $850 million that went missing from the mental health program that she was in charge of?
