New York City mayor Bill de Blasio to enter 2020 race
5 replies, posted
WASHINGTON — New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio will declare his bid for the presidency, his campaign spokesperson confirmed to NBC News on Wednesday, joining the almost two
dozen other candidates already competing for the Democratic nomination.
De Blasio will make the formal announcement Thursday morning and then travel to Iowa and South Carolina for multiple stops over four days. His wife, Chirlane McCray, who has been a
highly visible presence and close adviser during his six years at City Hall, will join him for part of the trip.
The mayor plans to highlight his record of progressive accomplishments in the nation’s largest city, including enacting universal pre-kindergarten, raising the minimum wage to $15 an
hour, and overseeing a drop in crime to an all-time low. De Blasio is not particularly popular back home, nor in early surveys of Iowa and New Hampshire, which vote first in the primary
process. His popular predecessor, Michael Bloomberg, opted out of a 2020 run.
With an estimated 8.6 million residents, New York City has a bigger population than 38 states, including Washington, Colorado and Montana, whose governors or former governors are
also running for president. De Blasio is the last major candidate expected to enter the 2020 Democratic field, though surprise additions are always possible.
please, make this stop for now.
And like 75 percent of these dumbass probably think their victory is guaranteed if they win the primary. That's why they're doing it. They think they can half-ass the general election once they get the nomination, because there's abosolutely no way a candidate as terrible as Trump could possibly wi...... oh.
