Hillary Clinton plans to participate in following elections of the New York City mayor, according to several news sources. Hew popularity in the city makes her a feasible person for this post.
Clinton has complex relations with New York. As a senator of the state over the 2001 to 2009 period her popularity reached both positive and negative peaks. It rose up to 60% in 2001, but fell to 47% at the end of the next year. The situation improved in 2005 (57%), but returned almost to the mentioned “bottom” in spring 2008, when she conceded the Democratic nomination to Barack Obama.
Internet sources believe Clinton has high chances to become a mayor of the New York City, if she’ll participate in elections. This assurance is also shared by some local Democrats. For example, consultant Hank Sheinkopf believes the current mayor Bill de Blasio will need to leave his post same day with Clinton’s registration in the election race. This opinion is supported by New Yorkers choices during presidential elections. Clinton achieved 59% in the state compared to Trump’s 36.5%. She trounced Trump in New York City, winning 78.59 percent with 1,969,920 votes.
De Blasio will face reelections Nov. 7, 2017, and his popularity makes sources doubt the man will continue to be a mayor. It dipped as low as 35 percent in April 2016. A Nov. 16, 2016 Quinnipiac University poll revealed 49 percent of New York City voters think he doesn’t deserve reelection.
Hillary Clinton will return to Washington
Mrs. Clinton plans to visit a place of her last government job next week to take part in the ceremonial opening of a new exhibition and museum area at the State Department that will be partly named for her. She was invited to take part both in the repetition and a formal event, alongside with two other former secretaries of state Madeleine Albright and Colin Powell. It would be only her second public appearance in Washington since losing the Nov. 8 election.
Clinton’s name will be given to one of the four exhibition halls in the U.S. Diplomacy Center. Three other pavilions are also called by names of former (Henry Kissinger and James A. Baker) and current (John Kerry) Secretaries of State.
The approximately $50 million glass-fronted addition to the hulking State Department building will house a museum of diplomatic history and artifacts.
