Barely two months after Hillary Clinton lost the presidency to Donald Trump, she is being urged by major Democratic donors and leaders to make a bid for New York City’s mayor and challenge incumbent Bill de Blasio, Newsmax has learned.
“She’s talking about it,” a former city Democratic elected official admitted to Newsmax over the weekend, saying the idea has not been dismissed by the former first lady’s inner circle.
He and other sources say Clinton is being pushed to run by Democrats dissatisfied over de Blasio’s mayoralty.
“If she ran, she’d win,” another source with deep ties to the Democratic and media establishment said.
Some Clinton advisers are reportedly predicting Trump will stumble badly in his first term, encouraging Hillary to stay on the sidelines in case she wants to make another bid for the White House in 2020.
But even her closest allies say the chances of her running for president again are small.
