The New York Daily News is reporting that Anthony Weiner is getting ready to jump into the New York City mayoral race, according to two anonymous sources, and even reportedly has a campaign manager.
From the Daily News:
The former congressman is preparing to jump into the race, possibly as soon as next week, the Daily News has learned. At least two people close to Weiner have been contacting political operatives to gauge if they would go to battle for him.
Politico reported on Wednesday that Weiner has picked a former DCCC adviser to run his campaign:
Danny Kedem, who worked on Mark Murphy’s congressional run in New York’s 11th District last year, has been brought on as Weiner’s campaign manager for a race he is likely to announce next week, according to multiple sources. Kedem’s resume includes a handful of other congressional runs and mayoral races, as well as field organizing work on Hillary Clinton’s presidential run.
