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.

The Congressman representing Long Island and a sliver of northeast Queens could seek the Democratic nomination, multiple outlets reported over the weekend.

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.
