Democratic New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is being rumored as a potential 2020 presidential election candidate.

According to Democratic operatives, de Blasio believes he will easily win reelection later in 2017 and this has him prompting to look at what he could run for afterwards, Page Six at the NYP reports.

According to the Post report, the mayor of the Big Apple is constructing his own exploratory mission and “spreading rumors that Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren are too old to be considered viable candidates for the presidency.  

Post reporter Richard Johnson has said that DeBlasio, 56, will claim that he’s the rightful standard bearer for the progressive wing of the Democratic party.

An issue that could arise for de Blasio are other top New York Democratic politicians, including Gov. Andrew Cuomo, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand and New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, all who have been making moves that could lead to their own run for the White House. The Post also reports that Schneiderman has powerful friends in Hollywood and famous TV producer Norman Lear has hosted fundraisers for him.

De Blasio recently received $2.57 million in city funds for matching for his reelection campaign. What he doesn't use in his mayoral run, he can use in a presidential run.

One political watcher said that the 2020 election is already de Blasio's primary focus.

"De Blasio is putting all his chips on the 2020 race," the watcher said. "That’s why, instead of staying in the city to comfort the children of assassinated police officer Miosotis Familia, he jetted to Germany to join the anti-Trump rioters who were smashing store windows."

“He thinks he’s the inheritor of the Warren and Sanders legacy,” said a Democratic power broker, “but no one told Warren and Sanders they were dead.”
