New York Mayor Eric Adams is considering a 2024 Presidential run, just in case President Biden decides to step down in 2024, according to a report in the New York Post.
“Eric has told me repeatedly that he thinks that he has a platform to run for national office, for president in 2024,” a source close to Adams told the New York Post. “He has said that repeatedly. He thinks New York is a national platform. He thinks the national party has gotten too far to the left and he thinks he has a platform to win.”
Adams advisor Evan Thies told the Post that rumors were unfounded, saying, “The mayor has not had any conversations with anyone about running for president. He is 100% focused on lowering crime and improving the economy in New York, and bringing this city back.”
A new poll released earlier this month shows the majority of New York City voters disapprove of how Mayor Eric Adams has handled surging crime in his just over four months in office.
