Hillary Bid for New York Mayor Gaining Steam

Unsatisfied with the prospect of being out in the political cold and without power, Hillary is moving closer to a possible bid for mayor of New York City. That is if reports in the media are accurate.

The New York Post reports that a Democrat intra-party war is brewing.

Here’s more from Newsmax:

New York City’s Democratic activists are clamoring for Hillary Clinton to take on Mayor Bill de Blasio in a primary election this year, saying she’d represent the change the city needs, The New York Post reported Friday.

“Hillary would have been the first female president,” the Rev. Patrick Young, pastor of First Baptist Church in East Elmhurst, Queens, told The Post. 

“She would be the first woman mayor in the history of New York City. She would be better at working with people and engaging people. She would be a breath of fresh air. We have a cloud over our leadership right now.”

Teamsters Local 237 President Gregory Floyd agreed, saying the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee and former New York senator would be the “best candidate,” and he would support her bid “because we need a change in New York City.”

Their comments come on the heels of an exclusive from Newsmax chief political columnist and White House correspondent John Gizzi, who reported on Wednesday that the ex-secretary state is being courted by Democratic donors and leaders to run in this year’s primary against de Blasio.
