This endorsement may not lend as much credibility as others

It’s unclear whether this was the mayor’s idea, or Bernie’s, but he’ll be back on the campaign trail in Nevada.

But I’m not sure development, as reported by the New York Times, quite fills the bill: Mayor Bill de Blasio of New York, whose brief presidential campaign failed to get off the ground last year, will endorse Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont for the Democratic nomination, according to people familiar with the plans. The timing of Mr. de Blasio’s announcement was still being hashed out on Friday. … Mr. de Blasio was expected to travel with Mr. Sanders on Sunday and Monday in Nevada, where they will appear together at canvassing events ahead of the caucuses there on Feb. 22. I’m wondering who’s doing whom the favor, particularly after reading this line in the Washington Examiner: It’s a move de Blasio hopes will propel himself to national relevance, those familiar with his plans told Politico, and comes five months after he ended his own bid for the Democratic presidential nomination. It was nice of the Examiner to omit the usual derisive adjectives for BDB’s 2020 campaign, such as “much-mocked” and “disastrous.” Seriously, though, you have to wonder why (or perhaps if) the Sanders campaign would want to deploy Hizzoner in Nevada when it has New Yorkers who have not lost “national relevance” on call, such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. And even if Team Bernie sees value in de Blasio’s testimony on his behalf, wouldn’t it be wiser to save it for down the road when Sanders may be in a cage match for the nomination with BDB’s predecessor, on whose record he is an authentic expert? Or perhaps for New York’s own primary in April? We’ll know soon enough how real and prominent this new partnership becomes. For now we can just hope with Sanders that de Blasio is better as a presidential campaign trail surrogate than he was as a candidate. Read more: New York Magazine

Nobody care what Debozo thinks Bernies probably like. For gods sake don’t campaign with me. NYCMayor Never Bernie 😂😂😂

Bill de Blasio Plans to Endorse Bernie SandersThe New York City mayor, who was briefly a presidential candidate himself, is expected to travel with Mr. Sanders in Nevada in the coming days, according to people familiar with the plans. will that hurt bernie?

De Blasio to endorse Bernie SandersThe New York City mayor’s move is also about advancing his own political interests. In backing Sanders, de Blasio is embracing the left wing of the party in its battle with moderates like Pete Buttigieg and Mike Bloomberg, whose outsized campaign spending has vaulted him to the top tier in the crowded primary field I never voted for deBlasio anyway..he is a loser like Bernie...can't wait for his term as mayor to be over..not soon enough Mr. Mayor!! It doesn't matter who the Dems nominate, they're going to get crushed in the next election.
