U.S. Rep Tom Suozzi (D-Glen Cove) is slated to announce whether he will throw his hat into the ring for governor Monday, according to reports.
Speculation about his candidacy reignited after Suozzi declined an offer by New York City Mayor-elect Eric Adams to serve as his deputy in a statement on social media, Saturday, instead teasing “plans for the future” in public office.
“I will do everything I can to help my friend Mayor-elect @ericadamsfornyc and the people of NYC succeed. After discussing it with my family, I believe the best way for me to help him and NYC is in elected office. I will announce my plans for the future in the coming days. TY Eric,” wrote Suozzi on Twitter.
