Catsimatidis Considering Another Run For New York Mayor

New York supermarket billionaire and radio talk show host John Catsimatidis is considering another mayoral run, commenting Sunday that he'll run both as a Republican and as a liberal.

“I am seriously looking at it. I would run as a Republican, but I’d also run as a Liberal, because I believe in helping people,” Catsimatidis told the “Morano in the Morning Show” on AM 970, reports The New York Post

Catsimatidis, who last ran for the 2013 GOP nomination, was defeated in the primary election by Joe Lhota, who got 52.5 percent of the vote compared to Catsimatidis' 40.7 percent.

Lhota was defeated in a landslide by Democratic Mayor Bill de Blasio, who beat him by 73 percent to 24 percent.

Catsimatidis said he's considering another run because he thins he can help all New Yorkers.

"I'm a people person," he told the program. "I'm a law-and-order person. I believe our people from the inner city have to be helped. Maybe we should start a new party called the Common Sense Party.”

Catsimatidis also noted how potential rival Kevin Sheekey, a former aide to ex-Mayor Michael Bloomberg, was an unknown.

“If you stop 100 people in the street and [say], ‘Tell me about Kevin Sheekey,’ how many of those 100 people would respond to his name?” Catsimatidis said.
