It’s an election year in New York, which means Jimmy McMillan is running for office again.
Mr. McMillan, the perennial “Rent Is Too Damn High!” candidate who has run for mayor, governor and president, today announced his intentions to run for governor yet again this year.
“Jimmy McMillan is back,” an email from his “Rent Is Too Damn High” party declared. Attached was a file called “Jimmy Mack is back.pdf.”
The McMillan announcement–which did not include a music video, like many of his past runs for office–took direct shots at Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who is seeking his second term in office.
“Governor Andrew Cuomo has been a big disappointment to the people in the State of New York. Three (3 ½) years of sitting in Albany the Governor are yet to address and resolved the most critical issues dealing with the People and State,” Mr. McMillan declared. “He must go!”
Mr. McMillan is planning to formally launch his campaign in March.
Politicker did not reach out to Mr. Cuomo’s office for comment.
