New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has decided to get some skin into the governor’s race.
After he embarrassed himself in the presidential election and ran New York City into the ground, he still thinks he has a chance.
The Mayor got a rude awakening when he reached out to donors, however.
Like many high-profile Democrats, De Blasio has made a hard left turn over the last two years.
He fully embraced the BLM movement, helped reallocate police funding in the city, and has managed to see crime rates that are approaching all-time highs.
Even so, he wanted to get some skin into the gubernatorial race.
He may be having second thoughts now, as all the big money just told him to go pound sand.
De Blasio reportedly reached out to mega-donors, most of whom informed him that they already backed Governor Kathy Hochul for the race.
One of the more prominent donors of the party is John Catsimatidis, who de Blasio reportedly met for lunch to discuss his possible candidacy.
After the meeting, John Catsimatidis stated, “Mayor de Blasio asked us to have lunch with him to discuss what he wants to do in the future, after leaves office on January 1. It was about what he’s going to do after January.”
He added, “It was a cordial and friendly discussion. I’ve known the man for 35 to 40 years.
“You know the expression, `You don’t go to bed and talk about it the next day.’ I’m not going to kiss and tell.”
It is hard to imagine de Blasio getting any traction in the state even if he does manage to get some financial backing.
He was an absolute disaster for New York, so why give him the state when he could not handle managing a city.
