(CNN) – Actor and political activist Alec Baldwin would "love" to run for mayor of New York, but has yet to decide if he will jump into the 2013 race.
"I don't know if I will be able to put together a campaign to run for that job. I would love to run for that job," Baldwin said in an interview Tuesday on CNN International.

The self-declared Democrat, who has previously flirted with a mayoral bid, dismissed the idea he run for Congress because there are no open seats for Democrats in his Congressional district or state-wide. But he said "we'll see" about the Gotham chief post after next year's final season of his hit NBC TV show "30 Rock."
Baldwin, a New York native, said state residents are ready for "huge change" after three terms of Mayor Michael Bloomberg. The independent Bloomberg successfully challenged state term limit laws that prohibited him from running for a third term in 2009 and enjoys high favourable ratings, according to recent polling.
"After 12 years of Bloomberg I know that New York on a spiritual level, on a psychic level, on an emotional level, they need a huge change," Baldwin told anchor Becky Anderson. "I think they need a mayor that is more inspiring."
