Just days after New York Rep. Max Rose (D-Staten Island) conceded re-election defeat to state Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis (R), it appears he is already testing the waters for another political run. Reports are surfacing that Rep. Rose may be looking to enter the open New York City Mayor’s race next year. Incumbent Bill de Blasio (D), who was a focal point of negative attacks during the congressional campaign, is ineligible to seek a third term. Therefore, interest is growing among Democrats looking to run for the position.
Announcing his candidacy yesterday was Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams. Other Democrats already in the race is former US Housing & Urban Development Secretary Shaun Donovan, NYC Comptroller Scott Stringer, and NYC Councilman Carlos Menchaca.
