Mayor of Paris Anne Hidalgo to run for president in 2022

The Socialist mayor of Paris, Anne Hidalgo, announces plans to run for president in next year's election, joining a growing list of challengers to centrist incumbent Emmanuel Macron. Hidalgo was the first woman to be elected mayor of Paris and she now hopes to become France's first female president. Polls currently show Hidalgo would garner only seven to nine percent in the first round of voting for president in April if picked to represent the Socialists.
