The New York Times reports:
He has traveled to three early presidential primary states, held $5,000-a-plate events for donors and hired a small-dollar fund-raising consultant. He spoke at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, a pro-Israel lobbying group, and is now on another trip to raise money in Boston, after which he will meet with Democratic activists in Las Vegas.
These are the concrete steps of a man preparing to run for president. But thus far, that man, Mayor Bill de Blasio of New York City, would prefer that his words speak louder than his actions.
When asked if he plans to run for president, he gives the same answers. He is “not ruling anything out,” and will consult with his family before making a decision, one that he says will come “sooner than later.” Bank on sooner.
