New York Metropolis Mayor Monthly bill de Blasio has endorsed Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., for president relatively than Michael Bloomberg, de Blasio’s predecessor.
The Sanders campaign claimed De Blasio would join the self-described democratic socialist in Nevada this weekend to rally supporters throughout the state ahead of up coming week’s Democratic caucuses.
“I am standing with Bernie mainly because he stands with operating households, and generally has,” de Blasio said in a assertion issued by the Sanders campaign. “New Yorkers know all too perfectly the hurt brought on by Donald Trump’s xenophobia, bigotry and recklessness, and Bernie is the candidate to get him on and get him down.
“I have known as for a daring, progressive agenda, and that’s exactly what Senator Sanders has championed for many years,” de Blasio continued. “I am very pleased to endorse a correct progressive chief who will fight for operating New Yorkers and people across the country.”
De Blasio, who was elected New York Town mayor in 2013, ended his very own marketing campaign for the Democratic nomination in September of previous calendar year right after having difficulties to obtain traction in the polls.
