NYC Radio: Owner Of 77WABC Expected to Make Mayoral Run
Billionaire business mogul John Catsimatidis is gearing up for another run for mayor of New York City — declaring himself a “Republican-Liberal” candidate, The NY Post reports.
“The progressive flank of the Democratic Party seems to be controlling common-sense Democrats through fear and intimidation. I stand by my belief that the so-called Progressive movement is actually REGRESSIVE, taking our City back thirty years,” Catsimatidis told The Post in a statement.
The Greek immigrant said he will dig deeper into his checkbook this time and could cough up to $100 million of his fortune to win the primary, then mount a serious challenge to whomever emerges the victor of the Democratic primary.
Other Republican mayoral hopefuls include Guardian Angels founder and 77WABC Talk Host Curtis Sliwa, taxi driver/bodega advocate Fernando Matteo and financier Sarah Tirschwell.
Catsimatidis hasn’t officially declared his candidacy, but insiders say he is definitely running.
