S.E. Cupp: No Plans to Run for NYC Mayor, To Everyones Relief Im Sure


TheBlaze’s S.E. Cupp said she has no plans to run for mayor of New York City, despite the urging of two political consultants.

Cupp said Roger Stone, a longtime Republican operative and former Richard Nixon aide, and Sam Nunberg, a New York City-based consultant, first approached her last year, and that Nunberg came to her again this week urging her to consider a GOP bid.

“[Nunberg] told me that he’d taken it on himself to come up with a strategy and a plan and has approached some potential donors,” Cupp told TheBlaze. “I’ve got more jobs now than I can keep track of and I love them all, my plate is full, and I have no plans to leave the world of commentary for the world of public office — to everyone’s relief I’m sure.”

She added, “I am not considering a run at this time.”

Stone tweeted Friday that urging Cupp to run “is a [Nunberg] project — I love SE but I’m for @manhattanmadam Kristin Davis for Mayor #NYC #2013.”

Stone also advised Davis — whose prostitution ring clients included ex-N.Y. Gov. Eliot Spitzer — on her failed 2010 New York gubernatorial bid.

Nunberg told the Daily Caller Thursday he’s still working to get Cupp to consider a mayoral bid.

“This past week I met with her and talked overall strategy, messaging and communications,” Nunberg said, adding that having Cupp as a candidate would give the Republican Party “a major image boost.”
