Former New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio might make a comeback to politics, this time for a run in a congressional district in the state.

The former mayor is watching a run for New York’s newly drawn 10th Congressional District, the seat vacated by Democratic Rep. Jerrold Nadler, as he vies against his former longtime ally Rep. Carolyn Maloney in the 12th Congressional District. State Assemblyman Simcha Eichenstein, a Democrat, was told by de Blasio that “he is committed to running in the race” and has already called donors to inform them of his intentions, Eichenstein told the New York Post.

“These neighborhoods are not foreign to him. He’s been representing some of these neighborhoods since 2001, and whether it’s been perfect or not at all times, these relationships are long-standing and run deep,” Eichenstein said.

De Blasio, who was replaced by Eric Adams on January 1, has already clarified in January that he does not intend to run for governor of New York this November. In October 2021, he had an approval rating of 25% for his performance as mayor, with 56% of New York voters viewing him unfavorably.

The former mayor also tried to win the Democratic nomination for the 2020 presidential election but fell in September 2019.

The 12th District merges the Upper East Side and Upper West Side into a single district through a new congressional map proposed Monday. If passed, Nadler and Maloney would be poised for a primary battle against one another.

De Blasio told state Assemblyman Simcha Eichenstein (D-Borough Park) Tuesday afternoon that “he is committed to running in the race.”

“He’s in, he’s running – he’s calling people,” said Eichenstein, telling The Post de Blasio had a list of donors and other elected officials to inform. “Based on the conversation that I had with him earlier today, he is running for Congress in the new NY-10 congressional district.”

“He called me earlier this afternoon. While I will keep our conversation private, I will confirm that we spoke for over 20 minutes about his decision to run for this district.”

De Blasio weighed a run for the NY-11 district – before the state’s redistricting maps were thrown out the first time – but then dropped his bid in February before it started.

“These neighborhoods are not foreign to him. He’s been representing some of these neighborhoods since 2001, and whether it’s been perfect or not at all times, these relationships are long-standing and run deep,” Eichenstein added of the new district.
