Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y, is endorsing Bill de Blasio for New York City mayor.
New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn is endorsing her former Democratic foe, Public Advocate Bill de Blasio, to be mayor.
Public Advocate Bill de Blasio — once thought by many to be too liberal in his policy positions, and too grandiose in his ideas for the city — has earned widespread voter support and is now in a strong position to win the Democratic nomination in New York City's mayoral race, according to two recently released polls.
Bill de Blasio, a father of two, resides in Park Slope Brooklyn with his wife, Chirlane. He began his political career as a junior staffer for Mayor David Dinkins.
Leading mayoral candidate Christine Quinn’s story of alcoholism and bulimia – personal battles conquered with, well, patience and fortitude – has been weaved, bound and is currently sitting on display at bookstores across the city.
