State Senator David Storobin came to office with a narrow victory in a special election against City Councilman Lew Fidler, which was ultimately decided in court. His district was then eliminated when the lines were redrawn, and he set his eyes on the so-called Super Jewish district, encompassing Borough Park and Midwood. He lost that bid Tuesday, suggesting his days as an elected official are numbered.

But come the 2013 City Council elections, Storobin may end up on the ballot yet again.

Crain’s New York is reporting that Storobin is mulling a run for Councilman Michael Nelson’s seat, who is term-limited out next year.

Crain’s reports:

Mr. Storobin, who lost to Democrat Simcha Felder by a 2-to-1 margin, said he would most likely run in the district currently represented by term-limited Councilman Michael Nelson, D-Brooklyn. It has a substantial Russian-American population, which represents his base of support and is fairly Republican-friendly. (The district will be redrawn to an unknown extent for the 2013 election.)

“I’ve had a million dollars spent on me this year by my campaigns, the Senate Republicans and PACs, so I have a lot of name recognition,” Mr. Storobin added.

… Another likely candidate for Mr. Nelson’s council seat is Ari Kagan, a former Assembly candidate and Democrat. Mr. Kagan is likewise Russian-American. Mr. Storobin, however, said he hoped that multiple Russian-American candidates would not run in the same race, and said that as a Democrat, Mr. Kagan has multiple districts from which to choose.

    I recommend that Mr. Storobin put his energies towards things that would benefit society. Go out there and do some good, especially now when people who have his abilities are so needed. Mr Storobin is not suited for politics, it appears to bring out the worst in him.

    Mr. Strobin’s name on the sign at his office hurts me every time I see it. The one thing he has in common with other elected officials is megalomania, He appears to actually believes his own adviser and backers. They only backed you because you are the weakest link and the most buyable pol. Grow up and get real.
