Could Alec Baldwin move from 30 Rock to City Hall? Quite so! The actor who has been politically active for years is rumored to be eyeing a run as Mayor of New York City.

The election set to take place in 2013 will be wide open and one of the top considered candidates Congressman Anthony Weiner may not run due to his recent personal troubles.

So will Alec run? via NY Magazine,

The “30 Rock” star, who has long talked about running for political office, believes Weinergate has shaken up the field of candidates enough that he might have a chance to win, a friend of the actor told The Daily.

“Alec said, ‘Hey, maybe this changes the race. The dynamics have shifted,’ ” said Baldwin’s pal.

“The Democrats need a high-profile candidate, and Alec can fill that bill.”
