Former New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio may be planning to jump back into the political fray by mounting a bid for U.S. Congress.

"He's in, he's running – he's calling people," state Assemblyman Simcha Eichenstein said, according to the New York Post. "Based on the conversation that I had with him earlier today, he is running for Congress in the new NY-10 congressional district."

"He called me earlier this afternoon. While I will keep our conversation private, I will confirm that we spoke for over 20 minutes about his decision to run for this district," Eichenstein said, according to the outlet.

A congressional map that had been approved by the Democratic-controlled state legislature was slapped down by the state Court of Appeals last month. A new map has been crafted by a court-appointed expert, according to the Washington Post, which indicated that state Judge Patrick F. McAllister is expected to green light district boundaries on Friday.

After announcing in January that he would not pursue a gubernatorial bid, de Blasio announced in February that he would not run in the state's 11th Congressional District.
