NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio endorses Bernie Sanders for President

NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio endorses Bernie Sanders for President

New York, Feb 15 (UNI) New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has endorsed US Senator Bernie Sanders in the 2020 presidential race, Sanders’ press office said.
De Blasio, who is set to campaign with Sanders in Nevada ahead of the caucuses there, became the first former 2020 contender to back Sanders. He'll join Sanders at a rally on Sunday in Carson City.
'Mayor Bill de Blasio knows that the only way we can defeat Donald Trump is by uniting people from all backgrounds around an agenda that speaks to the needs of working families," Sanders said in a statement to CNN on Friday.
"Jane and I grew up in Brooklyn and we are so proud to have the support of a New York City mayor fighting every day to improve the lives of New Yorkers. Bill is a leading example of what bringing the Democratic Party together around so-called 'radical ideas' like universal pre-K, paid family and sick leave, and defending immigrant neighbors can do for our country,' he added.
De Blasio also mentioned that he decided to stand by Sanders because of his progressive agenda and the support for working families.
On Tuesday, Sanders won New Hampshire’s primary, securing 26 percent of the vote. The senator is also leading the field in several pre-vote polls in the Nevada caucuses that will be held on February 22.
Mayor de Blasio abandoned his bid for the US presidency in September last year.
In the 2016 presidential race, de Blasio endorsed former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
