Eric Adams, New York City’s recently elected Democratic Mayor, may be considering a presidential run if President Joe Biden does not seek a second term.

A person close to Adams said, “Eric has told me repeatedly that he thinks that he has a platform to run for national office, for president in 2024. 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.”

The New York Post reported that a Democratic elected official in Brooklyn who frequently speaks with Adams said that the mayor was “considering a White House run in 2024 if Biden doesn’t seek re-election” and that Adams’ advisor Ingrid Lewis-Martin was “running point” on the issue.

Adams’ interest in pursuing a presidential run is reportedly due to the “growing chatter” that Biden — who is currently 79-years-old — may not seek re-election despite Biden’s insistence that he will.
