Hillary Clinton wants any election win — even if it means being forced to moving into a new jurisdiction just months before the election.
AOL reports Clinton is being “pressured” to take on New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, though the news site doesn’t say who is “pressuring” her.
Meanwhile, according to Newsmax:
“She’s talking about it,” a former city Democratic elected official admitted to Newsmax over the weekend, saying the idea has not been dismissed by the former first lady’s inner circle.
He and other sources say Clinton is being pushed to run by Democrats dissatisfied over de Blasio’s mayoralty.
“If she ran, she’d win,” another source with deep ties to the Democratic and media establishment said.
“She is wildly popular among New Yorkers — so much so that were she to file, de Blasio would have to file his retirement papers on the same day,” New York Democratic consultant Hank Sheinkopf tells Newsmax.
While Clinton may be popular in New York City, she doesn’t live there.
It’s been widely reported that she’s a resident of Chappaqua, a tony community some 30 miles away.
Clinton lives in a well-fortified sprawling mansion, guarded by walls and security.

Just two months ago, the media followed her as she voted at Douglas Grafflin Elementary School in Chappaqua.
What will the hizzoner wannabe do about her residency? Declare her office a home? Move in with trusted aide Huma? Shack up with Chelsea?
Do New Yorkers even care they’re a potential means to Hillary’s political end?
The election is November 7.
