Don’t hold out for Hillary Clinton to take on Bill de Blasio for New York City mayor, a top Clinton confidante said Sunday.
“I don’t expect her to ever run for any elected office again,” former Clinton aide Neera Tanden told CNN’s “State of the Union.”
Politicos are practically begging Clinton to run for New York City mayor to challenge de Blasio, Clinton’s former Senate campaign manager who was slow to endorse her for president.
But after her devastating loss to Donald Trump, Tanden said Clinton will seek to stay relevant outside of the ballot box.
“I think she’s going to figure out ways to help kids and families. That’s been what she’s been focused on her whole life, and a lot of issues that are affecting them, over the next couple of years,” said Tanden, head of the Center for American Progress.
New York City has never had a female mayor.
