Mayor Bill de Blasio says he’ll decide “sooner rather than later” about whether to run for president.
De Blasio has traveled to Iowa and South Carolina in recent weeks and plans to visit New Hampshire this weekend. The mayor says he’s traveling the country to tout his accomplishments in New York City, but admits he hasn’t ruled out a run for president.
De Blasio said if he did run, he wouldn’t resign as mayor.He said he can do both at the same time.
“By definition, look, all throughout decades and decades of history governors have run for president while sitting in office, senators. I mean, of course, people who have important jobs and busy jobs run for higher office. It’s pretty common actually,” de Blasio said.
