Alec Baldwin to Run For Mayor of NYC?

by at . Comments

30 Rock star Alec Baldwin has long mused about running for political office, but some of his recent Tweets have stoked more speculation than ever.

Earlier this week, Baldwin wrote that it's still "a long way till November of 2013" and then posted a link to the iconic song "New York, New York."

Interestingly, Baldwin just wrote an essay for The Huffington Post that was sympathetic to the plight of embattled U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner.

Alec Baldwin For Mayor!

Weiner represents Brooklyn and Queens in the U.S. House, but has openly coveted the NYC mayoral post and was all but certain to run in 2013.

His rampant crotch-shot texting likely slammed the door on that lifelong political aspiration - but did it open one for Alec Baldwin in the process?

It certainly could happen. The actor owns an apartment on Central Park West, though his primary residence is in the Hamptons on Long Island.

He has flirted with running for Congress from his Suffolk County district, but this is the first time his name has been tied to the mayor's office.

Baldwin is a registered Democrat whose political views are the polar opposite of his 30 Rock character Jack Donaghy, a Reagan-loving elitist.

What do you think? Should Alec run for mayor?
