Reports: Ruben Diaz Jr. mayoral bid not out of the question

Ruben Diaz Jr. isn't ruling out a mayoral run during the 2017 democratic primary against incumbent Mayor Bill de Blasio, according to the Bronx Borough President's office.



Diaz has pivoted toward a run in the past and has received hinted support from Gov. Andrew Cuomo if he does decide to throw his hat in the ring. 



Although he has not made an official announcement, Diaz said in an interview with the Observer that he hasn't made a decision, one way or another.
