Bloomberg called Clinton months ago to encourage her to join the race, apparently not entirely convinced that any of the current candidates have the gusto and experience to replace him, the Times said.
But Clinton, who reportedly maintains a close relationship with Bloomberg, unequivocally said she's not interested in the gig, the Times said, citing people who had been briefed on the call. Clinton, 65, will not return for another term as Secretary of State after holding the position in Obama's administration since 2008.
The mayor's office did not return a request for comment.
