The New York Mayor de Blasio supports Sanders in the 2020 democratic race

-

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – New York Mayor Bill de Blasio endorsed U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders at the 2020 Democratic presidential race.

De Blasio, a liberal who left democratic competition in September, will travel with Sanders to Nevada on Sunday and Monday, where his meetings will take place on February 22, the campaign said.

The confirmation comes after Sanders, who was born in New York but represents Vermont in the U.S. Senate, emerged from the first nomination competitions in Iowa and New Hampshire as the frontrunner among Democrats who wanted to face Republican President Donald Trump in November 3 choice.

“New Yorkers are well aware of the harm caused by Donald Trump’s xenophobia, bigotry and ruthlessness, and Bernie is the candidate to accept and throw him down,” de Blasio said. “I have called for a bold, progressive agenda, and that is what Senator Sanders has been doing for decades.”

Before leaving his campaign, de Blasio emphasized his accomplishments as mayor, including the end of the police practice known as stop-and-frisk, which involved a disproportionate number of blacks and Latinos.

Sanders has criticized Bloomberg, who outperforms all other candidates in its self-funded campaign, as an attempt to buy the election.
