Losing the mayor’s race is not keeping Curtis Sliwa down.

Showing he intends to remain a player in the Republican Party, the Guardian Angels founder has launched a new Super PAC aimed at defeating US Senate Democratic Majority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York, who is up for re-election next year.

Sliwa told The Post his “Save the Senate” political action committee plans to raise millions of dollars to pummel Schumer and promote a Republican opponent.

The main message on the website says, “Stop Schumer Now. “

“Though we came up short in our mayoral campaign, my movement for change progresses onward. I am more committed than ever to advancing our Republican values and priorities and holding liberal elitists accountable for failing New York and America,” Sliwa says on the website’s mission statement.

“Next up: Senator Chuck Schumer. After serving in government for nearly 50 years, Chuck Schumer has proved to be an incompetent, power hungry career politician. As Senator, Schumer has delivered nothing more than Sunday press conferences with empty promises. Between the rising cost of living, a broken healthcare system, struggling public schools, and lack of affordable housing, it is clear that Senator Schumer’s primary concern is keeping himself and his cronies in power.

He continued, “[Schumer] wants the American people to continue funding his disastrous policies that leave us with less public safety, housing insecurity, burdensome taxes, and arrogance towards necessary change.”

Schumer, first elected after toppling former US Sen. Al D’Amato in 1998, is seeking a fifth term. He has not faced a serious challenge in his three prior re-election campaigns.

Even D’Amato, now a lobbyist, said Schumer, a prolific fundraiser who visits every county in the state every year, is almost unbeatable. He endorsed Schumer’s 2016 re-election.

But Sliwa, who fell short in the November mayor’s election to Eric Adams, said the GOP has to fight the good fight.

“We’ve got to get rid of Chucky Cheese Schumer,” Sliwa told The Post during a Sunday interview about his anti-Schumer PAC.

While the state Republican leadership has focused much of its attention on promoting a strong candidate to run for governor, Sliwa said Schumer shouldn’t get a pass.

The Post recently reported that Aleksander Mici, a lawyer and Albanian immigrant from The Bronx, has thrown his hat in the ring to challenge Schumer.

“You can have a `Jeopardy’ question about the Republican candidates who run against Schumer in the past,” Sliwa quipped. “I’d like to see a candidate who can give Schumer a run for his money.”

Sliwa said given President Joe Biden’s bumbling and fumbling, the 2022 mid-term elections should be a “Republican wave” election that could even put Schumer in jeopardy, with the right candidate.

“Schumer is the poster child on why there should be term limits,” he said.

Sliwa did not rule out running against Schumer himself, saying he would only throw his ever present red beret into the ring as a last resort.

The Schumer camp declined to comment.
