Hillary Clinton is Reportedly in Talks to Run for Political Office--But Not for President, This Time
Hillary Clinton, for better or for worse, is a fighter.
Fresh off her Electoral College thumping at the hands of presidential rival Donald Trump, the former Secretary of State, New York Senator, and First Lady is reportedly looking to get back in the politics game.
Look out, Mayor de Blasio. A Newsmax source contacted the news outlet and related that Clinton is in talks to be the new top dog in New York City. Via The Daily Caller:
Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is “talking about” running for New York City mayor, Newsmax reports.
It has only been 57 days since President-elect Donald Trump defeated Clinton. During the election slog, Clinton, 69, collapsed getting into a Secret Service van, had multiple coughing fits during speeches and seemed to have trouble walking up steps at a rally in Lake Worth, Fla.
“If she ran, she’d win,” a Newsmax source said.
Hillary was Senator of New York from 2001 to 2009, as DC points out, and the left-wing NYC mayor De Blasio didn't exactly rush to endorse Clinton during the election.
New York Democratic consultant Hank Sheinkopf told Newsmax:
“She is wildly popular among New Yorkers — so much so that were she to file, [Mayor Bill] de Blasio would have to file his retirement papers on the same day.”
Mayor Hillary Clinton? Well, if you can't win the presidency, that's not a bad backup gig.
