Thanks to the Twitter scandal for the potential next mayor of NYC, Rep. Anthony Weiner, it looks like the conversation’s been opened for Alec Baldwin to take a stab at running for office!
As to whether or not the Emmy winner will run for mayor after Mayor Bloomberg’s term expires, Alec’s spokesperson stated, “I wouldn’t rule it out.” According to the Wall Street Journal, someone familiar with the situation said it’s “real possibility.”
Alec’s in contract with 30 Rock for the next season but given the timing of everything, it may work out for the New Yorker after all. The campaign will kick off after next year’s presidential election!
Although he didn’t say yay or nay completely, on his Twitter account Alec wrote, “It’s a long way till November of 2013.”
