CHAPPAQUA, N.Y. -- Hillary Clinton is heavily weighing a run for New York City mayor, with one source giving it a “50-50” chance that she make a Big Apple bid, according to The Real Deal real estate blog .
John Catsimatidis, the billionaire owner of Gristedes Foods who is considering a run himself, said he talked to former secretary of state and failed Democratic presidential nominee, and came away convinced she may challenge Mayor Bill de Blasio this year.
“I spoke to her about it, but she didn’t indicate or signal to me [whether she would run]. She didn’t say never, she didn’t say no. In my personal opinion, it’s 50-50,” Catsimatidis told The Real Deal.
Catsimatidis said he will delay his own decision to run for mayor until she decides.
“If Hillary runs, I won’t,” said Catsimatidis, who lost to Joe Llota in the 2013 New York mayoral Republican primary.
