Left Turn? De Blasio Endorses Clinton, Not Sanders
After months of vacillation, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced he's endorsing presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.By Ethan Weston | October 30, 2015
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is endorsing Hillary Clinton for president.
"I am endorsing Hillary Clinton enthusiastically because we have to take on income inequality," de Blasio said. "It is the issue of our time."
Almost every other key Democrat in New York endorsed Clinton months ago, but de Blasio, a former campaign manager for Clinton's 2000 Senate bid, had been holding back. Some took this as an attempt by de Blasio, a progressive, to move Democratic politics further left.
